Yes they are getting slower because basically they search every
directories for newer files, which means 'find' have to read every
single directories and look for files newer than a specific date, then
report these files. The more files/directories the more time.
Now I have a question (maybe a dumb one ?) Would it be possible to
look for the target install (when available) of the makefile before
running it ? (Maybe one already did it but I haven't heard of it) That
would guarantee a short exec time for the script each time we run it
(and we would run it often with a lfs ;-) ).
If this is a possibility, but no one did it, I would be pleased to try it ...

Please do not send me .doc, .xls, .ppt, as I will *NOT* read them.
