I don't have the numbers for system time vs. user time - but I
remember that much of the time was spent swapping memory in
and out - so this would be system time. I believe the CPU usage
percentage was very low (just as it was when I was compiling the
old MLton when I only had 256MB memory and 256MB swap).
Also, I remember that the mlton process was using 860 MB of
memory most of the time.
Btw. all of what I describe here applies to when I had 512MB RAM
and activated 512MB swap.
