1) For decent released compiler GCC: -O3 ... etc
2) For re-compiles of the GCC snapshots using 1) GCC:
         ../configure --disable-bootstrap ... and -O0

Is it good idea?

Another thing, if there is not time to pass shared libs to static libs
then to use
the prelinking's howto from Mandriva (old Mandrake).
