I wonder why that happened... Well don't mind. in the newest beta, the 
PP will not needed any more anyway. (that one will be out in a short while)

That's definitely too long. Be aware, though, that sacomp needs more than 100M 
RAM for compilation! It is not very well designed as will therefore just 
consist of one huge process needing that much memory and - what is even worse - 
doing memory accesses wildly to any parts of it, defying any effective 

I have run sacomp on a 64M machine, but for that I needed to close about any 
other program. Esp. the X-Server is deadly in that case.

Sorry that problem is not that well documented :-(
