It might be related to frequency scaling.
I have a Phenom II X4 945 and configure runs in 29 seconds, but only
when using the performance governor. When using the default ondemand
governor it runs in 59 seconds, similar to what Austin got.
It would be interesting to know how the i7 fares when using the
performance governor.
