Sometime between Aug 1, 2006 and Aug 22, 2006 the time needed to run the g++
and libstdc++ testsuite ballooned. 

See this message and followups:

Here are the specifics that I have:

20060724, make check-target-libstdc++
1145.687u 137.804s 23:13.98 92.0%       0+0k 0+0io 23pf+0w

20060822, make check-target-libstdc++
2624.876u 247.539s 55:42.82 85.9%       0+0k 0+0io 45pf+0w

Ouch. In that time, there have been some additions in the libstdc++ testsuite,
however it did not double in size. I've been trying to compile mainline
libstdc++ with 4.1.1 g++ to see if I can pin down the issue to a particular
component but there are a lot of incompatible changes, so comparing directly is
difficult to impossible.
