Ionic build takes more than 4 minutes

Hi everyone!

Here I have a problem with ionic build, that takes forever to finish the build and gives me no feedback on why. It terminates the process correctly, but takes too much time.

I have a project with this info

Ionic CLI                     : 7.1.1 (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/@ionic/cli)
Ionic Framework               : @ionic/angular 7.0.0
@angular-devkit/build-angular : 15.2.4
@angular-devkit/schematics    : 15.2.4
@angular/cli                  : 15.2.4
@ionic/angular-toolkit        : 9.0.0


Capacitor CLI      : 5.2.2
@capacitor/android : 5.2.2
@capacitor/core    : 5.2.2
@capacitor/ios     : 5.2.2


cordova-res                          : not installed globally
native-run (update available: 2.0.0) : 1.7.2


NodeJS : v20.2.0 (/usr/local/bin/node)
npm    : 9.8.1
OS     : macOS Unknown`

It’s a fairly big project, but the ionic build --prod takes more than 4 minutes to finish. I get this line of code Build at: DATE - Hash: XXX - Time: XXXXms and after that takes forever with no other news.

So I tried with the --verbose flag in case it could give me some explanation and only one line is shown: ionic:lib:hooks Looking for ionic:build:after npm script. +4m. But I don’t know where to even start with this. Any ideas?
