   1) You get some bloat, because those bits of support code are always
   included instead of #ifdef'd out if the option is absent.  There is
   also a speed penalty, because of the added flag checks.

kinda.  gcc will optimise out code that looks like

int foo = 0;

if (foo) {

so it will only be a lose if you define the various compat options.
