Someone else has to comment this. The failing component is not part of
teTeX and I have no idea hat goes wrong there.

Slow CPU, slow IO (network, slow disk), inefficient OS ...

I get on my PC:

$ time latex small2e
This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.7)
Output written on small2e.dvi (1 page, 1716 bytes).
Transcript written on small2e.log.

real    0m0.064s
user    0m0.040s
sys     0m0.020s

There is not much time for a long delay during 0.064s ...

This does not affect latex at all.
