It is frequently said that GCC is doing a good job at slowing down
compilation.  I also think that at least on some platforms
process-adaptive-read-buffering has some helpful effects (it did for
tramp until tramp put in some special code temporarily nilling it).

And people say that Emacs redisplay is also getting increasingly more
helpful here.
