Cesare, hi, thanks for responding: unfortunately, there's absolutely
no point in making any benchmark figures under an emulated environment
which does things like take 2 billion instruction cycles to start up a
program named "c:/msys/bin/sh.exe", due to it inexplicably loading 200
GUI-only truetype fonts.

and to do benchmarks on say windows would require that i install ...
windows!  so if somebody else would like to make some benchmarks, and
publish them, they are most welcome to do so.
