Just get the gcc-core tarball, that's C only, so enough for compiling
MPlayer.  A good moment to benchmark gcc would be when 4.0 is finally
released, which does not seem to be that far off.  I have some scripts
from Moritz Bunkus lying around from the last time I did gcc
benchmarks.  Just tell me if you want them.
