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). -- Duncan - List replies preferred.
