I'm not sure about slow or fast.  Those are relative terms.  I did do 
some benchmarks in building LFS.  For our benchmark package, binutils, 
it took 1.75 times as long to build.  That's a relatively disk/cpu 
intensive task because it is compiling a lot of files.

There was some discussion on line.  The thread starting at 
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.lfs.devel/14396 may give you some 
more into.
