The slowness of gcc when compiling is why I haven't been writing anything
using the gtkmm and gnomemm libraries (C++ gtk wrapper,
http://gtkmm.sourceforge.net/ ). It can take minutes to compile an
example program on my (old) 400MHz PII. The library has a lot of template
usage, so I suspect this is what causes the problems.
Some form of speed-up or precompiled header support would make gcc a
usuable platform for heavily-templated C++ code.
