That's what Martin referred to, isn't it?  It takes considerably longer
on my older and feebler hardware, also compared with `bzr update' and
`bzr pull --overwrite' in a shared repository.  And the size is also not
insignificant, if it means having a copy of the entire Emacs repository
for each build (~540M).  Is that really the standard procedure?  If so,
I guess I'll get used to it, but it does surprise me.
