Argh. Not this damn thread again.

To summarize:

Compiling everything with -march=notinventedyet -Oludricrous gains you
bugger all.
-O2 -march=i686 for stuff with a well travelled hotpath [kernel,
libc], -Os for everything else is about as funky as you'll ever need
to get. And even then, the differences are absolutely trivial. Are you
running a huge HPC cluster or something? No? Then fuggedaboutit.

First person to mention 'RPM dependancy hell' gets my special Curse [1]
