I think installing gconf schemas got slower with the gconf backend
changes.  This may have something to do with things, not sure.

If that is a significant cause of the slowdowns, we can partially
alleviate the problem, by changing all %post snippets from

for S in "<list of schemas here>"; do
  gconftool-2 --make-install-rule $S


gconftool-2 --make-install-rule <list of schemas here>
