Resolving Apache and gcc build performance issues

One customer was experiencing slow performance for the gcc build script and the Apache configure script. The problem was resolved by exporting the following variables.
The performance for the Apache configure script went from 2 1/2 hours to 3 minutes. The performance for the gcc and gcc++ build went from 4-5 hours to 35 minutes. The performance for the full blown gcc build using NFS went from 50 hours to 2 hours.
This solution has been placed into PMR 80251,004 to hopefully help anyone else who might encounter this issue.
Thanks to Joe Murphey for this tip.
