registry.db getting rather obese (> 600MB) and updates very slow. Anything to do?

I installed a subset of what I had previously installed. The registry.db is still small, but uninstalls are instantaneous again. I guess we see what happens over time.
All in all, all my 10.5 PPC port builds have been backed up, I made them all available as an archive source to a few interested users, and my system works like lightening again.
So i guess that's a win on all fronts.
