First of all: why must we? But if you want Debian to reach this goal,
grab a couple of packages, build them with you favourite
optimizations, find out if the failing build is the packages or the
compilers fault, file bugs. Repeat as necessary.

Ah, and run your optimized packages and compare the runtime with the
non-optimized version. Post the results. Thanks.
