Like I said, this works for me, and for many others too.

Perhaps you should have explained your problem better. There's
nothing we can do to make a single compilation of a single file go
faster. However, that's not the usual problem.
I wonder why your compilation is taking so long. It might be a bug in
gcc. Perhaps we could look at a test case.
