Were you ever able to isolate what it was that's taking up most of the time? Either in general or in the bit that pypy has trouble with. Or is execution time spread too widely?

(I looked at your project but it's too large, and didn't get much further with the github benchmark, which requires me to subscribe, but the .sh file extensions don't seem too promising to someone on Windows.)

Your program seems to be to do with typesetting. Is it possible to at least least quantity the work that is being done in terms of total bytes (and total files) of input, and bytes of output? That might enable comparisons with other systems executing similar tasks, to see if the Python version is taking unreasonably long.
