actually both of them are culprits. pdflatex used to create very
verbose output because of warnings about ambiguous entries in
pdflatex.map. This doesn't affect the output PDF from pdflatex, but
it causes kile to consume lots of time because it parses the logs
very slowly so that it is unresponsive for some time.

pdflatex no more warns because of ambiguous entries since
texlive-2007-11 and it made kile work much faster for me.
