OK, I resynthesized the multiplier. Actually the compilation went much
faster (little over 1 hour only). Also this time I did the synthesis
without any speed constraints. The results were following with the same
VirtexII 6000-6 bf957.

Speed: ~72MHz
Utilization: 29%

I can try the same with some speed constaints and with retiming. But that
slows down the compilation quite much.
