RE: gcc 3.5 integration branch proposal


Only on Faster Machines.
If you only build c and c++, then it seems fast on a lower 1.2 celeron.
If you use a Sparc or other CPU, where speeds are greater than 3 GB,
then sure, it seams fast. But it ain't. Only speedup is processor power.

In fact, I finally got around to building gcc-head, and comparing it
to gcc 3.3.2.

To say that the results are disappointing would be an understatement:

Time for a kernel compile, gcc 3.3.2:
  276.63s real   193.01s user    26.86s system
with gcc-head:
  341.31s real   213.25s user    27.87s system

Exact same options, basically -O2.

Now, tell me again that GCC is getting faster...
