Indeed. The gcc manpage is a veritable treasure-trove of interesting
options, even (especially?) for those who who don't know C but either
aspire to be or already consider themselves Gentoo power-users.
And this sort of issue discussion is perfect for a gentoo list, as even
for those who don't really understand it, it provides a glimpse into the
sorts of things gentoo devs must deal with on a daily basis (yes, I guess
that is sort of repeating the point I made before, but it's true).
