I only changed method of time measurement in your snippet, and obtained the slowness:

% typeset -F3 SECONDS=0; INPUT='ice as"program" pick"$ZPFX/bin/prll_(qer|bfr)" src"prll.sh" make"install PREFIX=$ZPFX"'; for ((i = 0; i < 50000; i++)); do printf -v OUTPUT '%q' "$INPUT"; done; echo $SECONDS

Not sure what using `time' instead of $SECONDS does, but above method is less suspected of any side effects.
