Not sure I can be of help.  Over the last few years we've had a few
times some significant performance regressions in the unoptimized build,
typically because of code cleanups that replace macros with inlinable
functions or things like that, where the optimized build usually doesn't
suffer (or even gets faster) which the unoptimized build can be
significantly impacted.

Way back when, an unoptimized build was not terribly slower than a -O2
build, but our current coding style in src/*.[ch] tends to make that
difference much larger.

The last few times we saw that, Paul has been quite good at finding
a few culprits and tweaking the code so that the overall impact is
brought back down to something acceptable.
