Rebuilding libssl takes a decent chunk of time on my 500MHz
UltraSPARC-IIe system... I can only guess how long it takes on a 50MHz
Classic or LX. Granted it's only one package, I have a fast machine to
build it on and many to use it on... but if more packages are identified
that would benefit from such optimizations, then I think makes more
sense to have those few specific packages built with multiple
optimization levels by the debian build system -- especially if it's
universally desirable like ssh2 authentication speed.
(Sorry Ben, I don't really mean to create more work for you...)
