When adding Bean as a dependency to my installation profile in an attempt to replace our initial Boxes setup. The time for installation nearly doubles from 410 seconds to over 1000. At first I thought this was maybe a problem with Entity Translation so disabled that but problem persists. Just removing Bean as a dependency and my installation time with Drush Make returns to normal.
Thinking this was a problem with my distribution I also tested Bean on the nodestream distribution and had the same results.
Is there any additional tests I can run to figure out why the addition of Bean affects the installation performance so much?
