How long does it take to run the regression tests (sans test_poll)?

FWIW, I am experiencing the "hang" under Windows NT 4.0 SP5.  However,
for me, the hang is with Python (with threads) and not make itself.

IIRC, during the make I see two python processes.  After killing the
make, I still see one python process that needs to be manually killed.
Please do a ps before and after you kill the make.  Are you observing
this behavior or something different?
