I am using gcc 2.95.3 with the flags:

-s -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -Wall -march=i686 -malign-functions=4
-funroll-loops -fexpensive-optimizations -malign-double -fschedule-insns2

That is to say, that is what I have CFLAGS set to.  What the configuration
script adds is another matter.  Thisset of flags is recomended as being
optomised for the K7.  After all, there's no advantage to compiling your
own stuff if you aren't going to optimise it.
