Why does skienforge take so long (do I have a setting wrong)

The title says it but why does skienforge take so long to slice? I sliced the same model in Slic3r and skienforge. Slic3r took 1 min 9 seconds. Skienforge took 43 min. That is a huge difference. Do I have something wrong?

Thank you for your time and help,

You're not doing anything wrong, Slic3r is just that much faster than Skeinforge.

Skeinforge, while it does a good job, is incredibly slow. More complex models can take hours to slice.

Slic3r is my choice slicing program. Support structure in slic3r is still... "teething" though...
