That was two runs of the same compiler. I've run it twice, to be sure 
that the workload of the PC doesn't influence the result to much.

The timing of the compiler without class helper search is the one in the 
older mail:

The first run is done by the starting compiler, right (2.4.2 in my 
case)? So this would mean that roughly half a minute is added by the 
2.5.1 compilers using the class helper search (I'll need to verify this 
assumption of course).
