Try this instead, and be amazed:

  CFLAGS='-O0 -g3' ./configure --with-gif=no --with-tiff=no --with-gpm 
  make -j5

IOW, force an unoptimized build, and add some diagnostics code to the
display engine.

My testing indicates that -O0 more than doubles the run time in this
case, and --enable-checking doubles it some more -- for a total factor
of 5 to 6.  I get about 7 sec in an optimized version, and about 40
sec in the one configured as above.

(In general, I believe that every Emacs developer who does something
that can affect redisplay should always run an unoptimized build --
this will make any inefficiencies stand out very clearly.)

See my other message with some results of digging into this problem;
hopefully, you will be able to pick up where I left off.

Well, evidently it can.
