or use
     time latex hochhaus2.tex > /dev/null
as that will redirect the latex output to /dev/null (i.e. the 
bitbucket), and still print the output of time in the terminal -- since 
time writes to sdterr. It also eliminates the overhead of the terminal 
itself (although that overhead is reported separately).
