I would have to agree. The performance gains in Gentoo tend to (In the Real World(tm) ) come from not having a bunch of crap instaled an running that hogs memory rather than from using a particular set of optimizing flags. Further, real-word servers ten to be built with some performance margin in order to handle load spikes, so a few percent here and there wouldn't really be measurable, assuming you compare to a system that isn't bloated. Further,this list has averaged at about one post per month since around 2003 when I joined, so don't expect to gett too many replies from here. --DA
