James has pushed a large change to next, which adds a binary cache of most of  the navigation data. The cache is stored in FG_HOME/navdata.cache, and rebuilt if the timestamps on any of the data files change (apt.dat, nav.data, fix.dat and so on). When the cache needs to be rebuilt, startup will take a bit longer  than before, but when the cache is valid, startup is /much/ faster, especially for debug builds:
