I compiled two libs with different compilers this morning: libavcodec and x264.
I must take back that gcc-4.0.0 is faster. It might produce better
code though, but so far, it's just a pain in the ass.

-march=athlon-xp -mtune=athlon-xp
4.0.0: make  135,17s user 1,67s system 97% cpu 2:20,18 total
2.95.4: make  74,62s user 1,72s system 99% cpu 1:16,63 total
3.4.4: "a bit faster than 4.0.0"... sorry, I lost the figure, and I'm
not at home to test.

4.0.0: make NDEBUG=1  21,33s user 0,50s system 97% cpu 22,309 total
3.4.4: make NDEBUG=1  19,31s user 0,56s system 96% cpu 20,581 total
2.95.4: compiles fails (maybe my fault, I don't know)
