I'm not as worried about performance as I am about compatibilty.
Various software suites have started using newer GCCisms in their
code. One example I can give from the top of my head is Wt
(www.webtoolkit.eu), which compiles with 4.4, but not with 4.2. I
shamefully haven't dug any deeper to check which particular
syntactical construct offended 4.2.
Yes, one might say, after all it's the upstream developers who ought
to make sure their software compiles on FreeBSD, but some aditional
overhead on the shoulders of our port maintainers should be expected.
