You might also want to take a look at the latexmp package.  The "TEX"
package will invoke tex separately for every label (11 times in your
case).  On the other hand, "latexmp" caches all labels to be typeset
and invokes tex once on all of them at once.  This is faster,
especially if you have many labels, however, you will need to invoke
metapost twice.  See the latexmp manual for details.
