IAR Compilation Performance

When I build the Hello program (SDK 1.0.0 (Beta)) for the K64 on IAR 7.20.2 the performance is very slow compared to another project using a different vendor's Cortex-M. As far as I can tell it is not the obvious stuff like optimization level or the complexity of the file. For example the Kinetis "hello_world.c" takes 2-3 seconds to build. The other project will compile up to five files in the same amount of time.


Any thoughts on options that may be causing the slow down? Or is this a Windows thing with it being installed in the C:\Freescale? I'll continue experimenting in the meantime.
