Forgive me for trying to get things back on another track, but g++ speed
isn't the only issue.
The compilation speed problems I've reported about the OpenBSD kernel deal
EXCLUSIVELY with C code, and not really modern C code at that.
20% for the bare-bones compiler is no joke, C++ problems notwithstanding.
