It's always worrisome for gcc based languages to default to horrible
performance, it means that many benchmarks will be run only with this
Yes, but this is alpha-specific, and I don't think relevant benchmarks
are still done on that platform. ;-)
We certainly still have customers using that platform who are definitely
concerned with performance, and not willing to step forward to ia64 as
the official successor (if they are using VMS they have no other choice).
