Absolutely. At that speed, your photon mapping is going nowhere.

If your scene renders reasonably fast without photons, chances are the
photon setup of your scene has some serious issue(s).

If your scene's main render is as slow as the photon mapping(*), there's
some more egeneral problem with your scene.

(* A lack of photon progress info in 20h is equivalent to POV-Ray not
having completed a single render block even after 8 days(!), presuming
standard 32x32 block size.)
