RE: Benchmarks gcc 3.0.4 (soon 3.1) vs. Intel C++ 6.0


I asked RedHat's Richard Henderson about which options I should use for
getting the fastest code from gcc; he only suggested -O2. In fact, he wasn't
real hot on -O3 (which I used) because he thought it might slow code down
through bloat.

I am looking into this further; I hope to have an updated comparison,
including reader comments, over the weekend.
