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.
There is not much time for a long delay during 0.064s ...
> It might have something to do with the wierd option someone gave me
This does not affect latex at all.
