I'm not terribly surprisedif you'll look, you'll find that repmat() is not builtin as one might expect but just an mfile implementation. bsxfun() is builtin
So, since you've got a variablesized case, I'm guessing the best implementation (other than mexfile) will be to use the loop after all.
Again, doublecheck the File Exchange for a replacement bxsfun()  it does seem to me like somebody (Bruno maybe?) posted one there that is betterperforming...
