There may or may not be, however I highly recommend avoiding pgcc.  There
are exactly two braindead compilers that are guaranteed to screw up
something in QuakeForge: vc++ and pgcc.

We all know how screwed up the former is.  The latter has (and has had for
some time) several very obnoxious bugs which result in bad code on certain
non-trivial applications.  Those patches and improvements found in pgcc
get added to egcs as soon as they are known not to do stupid things anyway
so it's worthwhile simply to stick with egcs and use the optimizations it

In almost all cases you will not be seeing any noticable difference in
execution speed.
