Perhaps removing the *elc files from the source distribution needs to be
considered, given that it's possible to do without and that most peoples
machines have got faster. The build would be slower clearly; a quick try
suggests twice the time.

2min after make distclean
4min 30 after make distclean; find . -name "*elc" -delete

Or alternatively, 2 minutes more.
