Yes, that's true. Parser and name lookup are most expensive tasks. But how
is it possible that trunk is so much (~20%) faster than tree-ssa, when
tree-ssa is based on trunk?
Good question.

I only mention this because i'm pretty sure that right now, even if we
made gimplification take no time on these testcases, we'd still have a
large percent regression just from the parser times.

Agree, but maybe it just tell something about not so good optimizations on
tree-ssa branch in comparison with trunk, i.e. trunk optimizes C++ parser
much better...

In one case, you are talking about it getting 50% slower. I have a very hard time believing we are optimizing things that much worse in an entire file.
It is also consistent across platforms (IE more than just x86), is it not (I don't have a 3.5 build handy on this powerbook)?

Is it possible to not bootstrap tree-ssa, but just compile
it by GCC3.4.0/3.5.0 and see if parser is faster? If so, how?

Don't do make bootstrap, just do make
It'll compile gcc with your system compiler
