total time in link - means what?

Hi all,
when compiling I sometimes see this 
(example is ld-static + ncurses-dyn compile, on stderr):

/usr/local/bin/ld: total time in link: 0.660000
/usr/local/bin/ld: data size 1744116

This seems some nice information - only I don't know what to
make out of it? Searching all my documentation I could not
find anything that seems to be connected to this, so would
anyone who knows give me a short push where to start reading?
