I use enable-native-libs to speed up Dialyzer initialization and avoid
having to pass -nn (and potentially slow down overall analysis time).
The disadvantage is that general vm startup takes 100 to 200 ms longer
due to native module loading.

$ dialyzer --help
--no_native (or -nn)
      Bypass the native code compilation of some key files that Dialyzer
      heuristically performs when dialyzing many files; this avoids the
      compilation time but it may result in (much) longer analysis time
