There are a couple of things that I've planned.  The first is to remove
the really expensive "populate-runtime-subdirs" operation.  Then, I'll
try to avoid the 2-pass build in mcs/ by building some of the
assembly-signing mechanisms during the bootstrap.  That should kill most
of the time-consuming parts.
