Subject: [gentoo-dev] -O2 <=> -O3 ?

I read on the KDE mailing list the following statement:


<snip>
-O3 is a bit slower than -O2 since it does extra optimizations.  If you've 
got a slow box (like me, K6 III 400) you might want to forgo -O3 and use 
regular -O2.
</snip>

I'm on a K6 III 400, if i change the -O3 to -O2 in my /etc/make.conf , will 
my system go faster? I noticed that KDE runs a little slower than on my 
Redhat 7.1....  Please give me your thoughts?

Thanks!

Bart

PS is cvs.gentoo.org down? emerge rsync isn't working the whole day now....
