It depends on oprofile's overhead. The SPEC95 runs are already
taking about 9-10 hours. I don't have too many cycles to spare.
We can always save the compressed cc1 binaries and re-run with
oprofile when we notice a slowdown.

But the compiler is built on the same filesystem, it should be
affecting bottstrap times the same way. In any case, I'll be
keeping better track of these numbers from now on. The SPEC95
runs should resume in a few more days.
