g++ still SLOW without optimizer - when compared to gcc :(
I always compile without -O, but for some reason C++ takes
10 times longer then equivalent C sources :/
To be clear: I am not saying it is slower then any other
compiler or version, but I am convinced that it could be
greatly improved (perhaps needing a rewrite ;) of the compiler).
