Feh, if you want that use Slackware -- I simply don't buy the bunk that Gentoo
gets you a significant "measurable amount" of performance and the time wasted
in playing with USE_FLAGS and whatnot... meh.
Give me some good hard repeatable numbers between i486-instructions, i686 code
ordered binaries and as fast as you can tweak out Gentoo that show
*significant* savings. I bet you can't find them.
