Not really. It's it's extremely target processor dependent and generally the
defaults are the best settings. It can vary a lot based on the SSE
instructions and number of registers available and the register allocator and
scheduler are optimized with that in mind.

I'd say it's still in flux. The register allocator and instruction scheduler
were both rewritten for 4.4 and have seen a lot of work since then.
fonts, gcc-porting, it makes no sense how it makes no sense
toolchain, wxwidgets but i'll take it free anytime
