here are some results on different hosts
we did't use -multi in these cases as CentOS-machine has only one core

EF: AMD Athlon Dual Core Processor 4450B - cpu MHz: 2298.917
CentOS 5.3: Intel Celeron CPU 2.00GHz - cpu MHz: 2660.185 (quite old box)

indeed - the old machine performs quite nice
we didn't include the osx-tests as the results ware really ugly to see...
could't test sha256 and sha512 as the EF-binaries don't support them at the moment
