What's wrong with xkbcomp?

Hi All,

An issue that is often discussed is the xkbcomp utility, that parses
the xkeyboard-config configuration files
and produces a binary XKM file that X.Org can read and take the
keyboard layout settings from there.

Apparently, xkbcomp has performance issues when running on small devices.
On modern computers, xkbcomp is very fast. In the process of
diagnosing where the problem is,
I would like to ask for a sample of command-line options
that are used when you try to run xkbcomp on a small device.

So, what parameters do you give to xkbcomp when you invoke it on these
small devices?
