Follow-up Comment #3, patch #9955 (project pspp):

> You are right that gimp is magnetudes slower than other tools, and in many
respects is an overkill for this job.

project and the policy is to use other GNU tools where feasible.

I think it would be reasonable to support more than one tool here.

Also, my guess is that most of the slowness of GIMP is a startup cost.  Maybe
there is a way to convert more than one image in a single run, speeding things
up significantly.

Finally, running "make -f Smake -j$(nproc)" also speeds things up.
