Uff. Does this really happen out there?

It's libtool which is slow, the actual linking is pretty fast once gcc
is started. Say, libtool takes around 2 minutes and gcc 2 seconds. 
I have been trying to isolate the culprit in, but it's rather
easy to get lost there, so I haven't found anything relevant. It might
be just that sh is too slow, and libtool is not doing anything that
redundant after all.

It's around 17 here, but there's no particular order. Not really
something I can fix easily, they are in the order pkg-config writes
them. It doesn't seem particularly bad, anyway:
../cut-n-paste-code/gsequence/ -Wl,--export-dynamic
-pthread -L/home/garetxe/garnome/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -leel-2 -lgailutil
-lglade-2.0 -lrsvg-2 -lgsf-1 -lesd -laudiofile -lgnome-desktop-2
-lgnomeui-2 -lSM -lICE -lbonoboui-2 -lxml2 -lz -lgnomecanvas-2 -lgnome-2
-lpopt -lart_lgpl_2 -lpangoft2-1.0 -lgtk-x11-2.0 -lgdk-x11-2.0 -latk-1.0
