10 If all the other stuff isn't being re-compiled, "-march=prescott"
11 probably includes them by default, so there's no point in re-building
12 your system. The CFLAGS were probably included by default.
14 If you need a speed boost in Firefox, there is some additional
15 tweaking that can be done. The pango library allows Firefox to
16 simultaneously render US English text (if that's your system locale)
17 *AND* Chinese, and other similar text. It slows down Firefox in the
18 process. If you're willing to give up on Asiatic text, you can cause
19 Firefox to not link against pango, by including the line...
21 www-client/mozilla-firefox moznopango
23 /etc/portage/package.use It's your decision whether occasional
24 Asiatic scripts or a faster Firefox is worth more to you.
