[racket] Racket 5.1.1 performance issues

Hi guys,

I'm running a debug build of Racket 5.1.1. I expected poor
performance, but it is almost unusable:

oh05keny at client102:/nethome/fire01/disc04/users1/oh05keny/Downloads$
time ~/racket-5.1.1/bin/racket -e '"Hello World"'
"Hello World"

real	2m9.988s
user	1m19.825s
sys	0m0.720s

Is it possible to get better performance while retaining the debug symbols?
