First of all - by default Roxen is compiled with lots of run-time
debug. By disabling this, (configure with --without-debug), Roxen will
run noticable faster. A second issue is parsing, as mentioned
already. To get a fair speed comparision, the html-parser shouldn't be
enabled - especially not if you use gtext.

Also, Apache is most likely faster anyway, in standard benchmark
environment. In Real Life (TM) environments however, where the number
of concurrent requests usually are higher resulting in high memory
usage and lots of context switching. To simulate this with
benchmarking, I used a 6.6MB large file and 100 simultaneous
requests. All the below is done on my Linux machine - a P166. Since
threads aren't very efficient on Linux, the threaded results are worse
than they would be on for example Solaris.
