I believe that's fixed in the current development version.

Quite a while.  Since CVS uses file timestamps which have a granularity
of one second, it frequently has to sleep for one second to ensure that
changes get noticed.  In fact, CPU speed has almost no effect on the
time the testsuite takes since it spends nearly all of its time sleeping
or doing I/O.  If you want to get a rough idea of where it is, you can
do a tail on src/check.log and look for "PASS:" lines -- most of them
will contain a test name which you can then compare against the big list
of test groups in src/sanity.sh (search for "Basic" to find it).
