I can say that Xfree86 isn't impossible to compile with ccc.
As I have done it, not newer only older versions.
X4.1.0 were last what I tried and succesfully compiled with ccc, speedup
were notable sometimes.
Of course there will be more notable speedup if windowmanager is compiled
too with ccc.
I didn't do that wm compiling so it might slow down.
