I just wanted to thank everyone who helped make the gcc 4.2 merge possible -- I can see a noticeable performance increase (1.5x ~ 2.0x load time decrease) in my server (P4 HTT with SMP).

This will be one of the great changes that will put FreeBSD back on the map closer to many Linux distros.

Once gcc 4.2.1 gets in the tree, things will be much better, I'm sure :).

Thank you very much, and let me know if you need testing with gcc 4.2.1 when it rolls around ;).
