Yes, the configuration time is kind of bottleneck now.  It happens now,
(Windows Cygwin build, with a compiler wrapped with a script to convert
Cygwin style paths to Windows on VMware) to take I think about 20 sec
for each file. It is not that dramatic when you use native gcc for
instance, but in this case it is unbearable. Spawning a model for each
configuration script is also quite time consuming.  However, despite
that I like the stdcxx build system (but I will not say replacing with
something different is bad idea, just I don't have major problems with
