ulimit -n 10000 was a fine workaround.
The inkscape build too prints out the time to build.
Results for both windows and wine were:
system 1 system 2
os vista 64 jaunty 64
cpu e8400 q9300
freq 3GHz 2.5GHz
cores 2 4
ram 1GB 4GB
time 39m 1s 46m 29s
Wine was 19% slower, which is about what you might expect given
the difference in core frequency and if only one core was
being exercised (which is probably the case).
(Note that the vista box had no antivirus utility installed;
times would be slower on vista if it had one, I bet.)
I'll repeat the measurements on the e8400 system
with linux and wine tomorrow for an apples-to-apples
