   megaco is most important to me. it took 10 hrs to build my plt.

Creating initial PLT (will take several minutes; please be patient)
Done building PLT in 597m43.68s

   i don't consider that particularly bad. of course, if the plt was delivered 
with OTP it would be even better. it compresses down to 800Kb, not too bad.
