Well. I think most people don't run them. Even I don't run them most of the
time. But to be able to have a comparison here the numbers for a time make

real    11m26.067s
user    67m2.876s
sys    1m24.788s

So based on that at least for the dbgutil build the java tests are actually
not that slow anymore. Well there are not that many and if you look how
many tests the slow cppunit tests I think they are still much slower. But
the numbers are now around 2:1 for the cppunit tests.
