What do you mean with slow?
The first time something is compiled, Linux has to load a lot from disk.
Do you have enough ram?
For example:
Compiling a lazarus application the first time can take 6 seconds and
the second time 1-2 seconds, including linking.
If you started Lazarus in a gnome terminal, then it will be slower.
