Ah, I see. It looks like the bleeding-edge versions add -no-pie to
LDFLAGS instead of CFLAGS. Doing the same thing myself both to those
versions and the 25.1 tarball (which is what I was using before) now
results in the same performance as before, within error.

Is it a bug that adding -no-pie to CFLAGS slows startup and runtime
performance by a factor of 2?

I would have expected that -no-pie would generally be faster compared to
-pie. Is that not the case?
