The long time it takes to do a build might be due to the content of your 
stack, but also there can be a big delay if you have the standalone 
builder set to scan for inclusions. If you uncheck the box "search for 
required inclusions" and instead check the box "select inclusions" the 
time it takes to build can be dramatically reduced.

If you've already done that, of course, ignore this. ;)
