I've tested the difference today on an average 4 CPU machine with 8GB
RAM. This is the result of otherwise identical LTO+PGO builds:

--enable-build-with-cxx  make -j4 profiledbootstrap  3384.20s user 177.02s system 291% cpu 20:23.12 total
<default>                make -j4 profiledbootstrap  3011.03s user 144.30s system 297% cpu 17:41.59 total

That's a ~15% increase in build time.

(I couldn't test --enable-build-poststage1-with-cxx, because it doesn't
seem to work with this configuration. Maybe the patch needs to be updated
to also cover LTO or PGO builds?)

Configured with: ../gcc/configure --prefix=/usr
--host=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu --build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu --disable-altivec
--disable-fixed-point --without-ppl --without-cloog --enable-lto
--enable-nls --without-included-gettext --with-system-zlib
--disable-werror --with-gold --enable-secureplt --disable-multilib
--enable-libmudflap --disable-libssp --enable-libgomp --enable-cld
--enable-checking=release --disable-libgcj --enable-languages=c,c++
--enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --enable-__cxa_atexit
--enable-clocale=gnu --with-build-config=bootstrap-lto

And built with:
make -j4 BOOT_CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe"
STAGE1_CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe" CFLAGS_FOR_TARGET="-march=native
-O2 -pipe" profiledbootstrap
