That's certainly the easiest solution.

If you compiled Myth yourself you might try some different compiler  
optimizations. I was playing with an old VIA Samuel CPU and  
discovered that if I used the "s" optimization (optimize for size) it  
helped by making better use of the tiny cache on that chip, but that  
was for SD stuff.

Also, check to see if you're swapping and if so consider more RAM.
