Binary File Read in Mathematica 5 for Mac OSX

Extremely long read time for binary files using the Utilities Standard
Package.  In this case I'm reading signed 16 bit integers.  The command s and
syntax work as advertised, but it's SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOW, and I have big files.

Can't find the Experimental binary import function ... error message seems
to indicate it doesn't exist for Unix based systems.

Looks like it will be faster for me to do a regular ReadList in Byte format
then piece everything together myself.  It's not that bad in this case, but
still, YUK!

I sure hope I'm missing something obvious.

Any help appreciated.
