A while back I ran a large number of tests on optimisations across an
athlon t-bird 1.4g, pentium4M (dell laptop) and a cyrix 200 (for fun!).
The applications were scientific, some home scripts and gimp
I was mainly interested in routines that run for many hours/days as this
was what was causing me the most grief at the time. Basicly, ~10% gains
can be be seen between -Os (s must be for for slowest!) and -O2 (-O3 is
almost always slower than -O2)
Of course, results were highly variable, and application dependent.
I came to the conclusion that for me, compiling the system with
"-march=athlon-xp -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -falign-functions=4"
gave the best general gain. My next step was to be to compile all the
gui stuff with -Os to speed up startup - but I never got around to it.
Per package optimisations would be nice, but I can imagine it getting
into a far greater mess than USE flags are at the moment - getting
