For me, with gcc-4.0.3, the test compiles rather quickly. What is the time
for other compilers?

I certainly agree that if a test runs out of 30 min limit, it's a problem
with the test, not your setup. Not too mention that spending 30 min on a
single test throttles the testsuite turnaround time.
Is anybody in position to work on fixing this?
