Are you using most up-to-date version (SVN HEAD, nightly build)? If not,
you probably can provide output of -d+10 in case there's some local
scalability problem. What is your OS and compiler? Will you be willing
to try Python port of Boost.Build in near future, which should be considerably
faster on all use cases?
