Maybe someone knows the precise reason, where I can only report
hear-say. I had read that the developers only claim that gcc 4 has a
lot of potential for better performance, but it may not have been
realised yet. And I have seen benchmarks that report a drop in
performance on AMD64 (whereas there seems to be a slight increase for

I have to admin that the difference you experience is rather big, and
I cannot explain the size. Maybe gcc 4.1 will be better.
