I usually do "make build CC='cc -pipe' on machines that can handle
it.  In case anyone is interested, the "make build" I ran yesterday
looked like this:

box# time make build >&
5606.9u 2563.7s 2:47:25.51 81.3% 0+0k 53101+172393io 0pf+0w

I'll run it again today with -pipe and let everybody know the
The box:
	HP NetServer 5/133 LC
	Adaptec AIC7770 EISA
	HP label 1GB (Seagate Hawk I believe)
	SMC EtherPower 10/100 PCI (no NFS mounts though)
