With `-O3' it shouldn't matter, but it may be a good idea since
`-O2' is the default in many makefiles.

I'm just referring to what yyfill does (especially when called
multiple times for multiple uses of $1). I don't know exactly what
GCC can optimize away, but I see that it uses pointers and the
address operator (in the call), and I've seen some less-than-perfect
GCC optimizations with such constructs in the past. Maybe this has
improved recently though, I don't know.
