Actually I think it's just that Pango is pretty slow. A lot of /big/ speed improvements have been made in the latest version, however (I've seen figures around 35% for speed improvements).

That wouldn't explain why the binary of Firefox, which uses pango, is faster than a compiled version of Firefox.
