I really wouldn't sweat it:  Java is not C, it's far easier for a compiler
to emit bytecode than object code.  Consequently, compile times are much
smaller.  Additionally, there's no reason *not* to be using jikes.  If you
are not using it yet, download it now and report back if your compile times
are still an issue.

(Also gotta give it up to Intel for the Pentium 4, it's damn fast)
