[erlang-questions] erl REALLY slow to startup

I've been typing erl at the prompt and waiting about 20 seconds before
I get into the Erlang shell on my MacBook 1.83 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
machine.  I thought this was normal because it's the only place I have
ever used Erlang.  But today I tried it from a MacBook Pro 2.85 GHz
Intel Core 2 Duo machine and it started up immediately!  Is there
anything I can do to get it to work like that on the MacBook?
