But it should not be an order of magnitude :)

Dependency tracking in Windows is pretty slow in BJam because NTFS is
slow. It takes 7 seconds to initialize BJam in Windows on my machine but
only 1.5 seconds in Linux.

I think we can optimize BJam's dependency tracking by using "change
journal" in Windows. And it doesn't even require a resident change
tracker process.

With respect,
