[SDL] What is wrong with SDL_TTF?

Hello everybody!

I'm trying to use SDL_TTF to render a lot of text. But it's extremally 
slow. On Sempron 2500+ 256 mb ram GeForce 4 it is running great. On 
Duron 800 128 mb ram Riva 2 I have about 50 fps - it's acceptable. But 
on Pentium III 450 mhz 320 mb ram I have for 10 to 25 fps.

1) Why it's so slow?
2) It's possible to render more than one line of text on one surface?
3) Is there any portable alternative way to render text with SDL?

Thanks a lot.
