[clug] Opie on slow computers

I had half a good idea - I'd run opie, the suite for PDAs and handhelds 
on my slow old Pentium 75.

It turns out that it runs slower than X and black box.  My framebuffer 
didn't work right, but even through the messed up picture I could see 
opie (qpe) going quite slowly.

Running it in qvfb was even worse.

But this is the suite for 200Mhz handhelds.  Was there some switch or 
option I missed to make it go really fast?
