select loop speed

Is there any way to speed up the time spent dealing with select? Cachemgr

        Select loop called: 885025 times, 714.176 ms avg

on one of my small machines (actually my 1.2.beta20 test box). I've always
seen VERY fast select times on Alphas and such and slower times on slower
processors which makes me think that this is primarily a hardware-dictated
number. Is there any config tweak that can be done to help though? Or
would I just need to beef up the processor...
