I guess if you have said that your laptop is overheating, more people
would take you more seriously.
Well, you might want to check CPUFreq. You can set the CPU to run at
lower frequency or use the powersave governor before doing heavy
compilation. The CPUFreq tool is command line (cpufreq-set,
cpufreq-info, and cpufreq-selector), but I think one of the toolbar
applet can switch your CPU frequency as well.
If you compiled your own kernel (instead of using Ubuntu's generic
kernel), there is a kernel option that you might need to change.
