Link times. [ The 'link error in Etch' was something we first saw on hppa,
and later noticed as a general problem -- but which is fixed in recent g++
Are you aware of anything we could turn in as a self-contained example?
Without an example, the g++ authors will have a hard time tuning this.
As I say it, build time for QL are way up relative to g++ 4.0; linking alone
for the small-ish RQuantLib is now over 8 minutes. John seconded this
observation based on a different code base he is working on.
Do you still have a Debian box you use for development?
Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
