Be warned that gcc without -O generates really bad code.
If you are running performance tests, always use at least -O1.
-O2 is probably better.  Often, -O3 can give worse results than -O2,
though, because (I hear) it inlines too aggressively (perhaps not a
problem for Java, where inlining is still not quite there).
