The default is hard coded and no longer configurable.

>From some old message from March 2000:
... changed behavior to checkpoint when _either_ of these conditions are true: 
  a) (10 minutes since last checkpoint)
  b) (30 seconds since last checkpoint) AND (summed completion % change >= 10%)

Percentage changed is not applicable for ogr.

CPU time is a terrible thing to waste!
