I'm new to LilyPond, but I've noticed that the binary I have installed on
Windows Vista is extremely slow.  I've poked around on the bug report archive
trying to find a solution to my problem, and none has presented itself.  When I
call LilyPond slow, I mean that it takes a good 1-3 minutes on a very nice
machine running the not-very-nice Vista to create a .png file of one measure of
SATB partwriting.  I do not think that this is the performance the developers
intended.  I've decided that this problem is due to the fact that every time I
run LilyPond in verbose mode the majority of the runtime is spent with me
waiting at "Building font database."  It makes sense to me that the font
database would need building, say, the first time the program is run, but I'm
left to wonder why the database doesn't persist (it would make runtime 100x
faster).  Is there anything that I can do to fix this?  I'm running LilyPond
2.10.33 (the latest version).
