Hi all,

I added -funroll-loops in my C{,XX}FLAGS and fluxbox doesn't compile.  Well,
in fact it compiles up to, but at that point gcc seems to hang
(it has been running for more than eight minutes consuming cpu).  Removing
the flag lets it compile very fast.

This is under NetBSD 2.0G, that is, with gcc 3.3.3nb3.  Could anybody try
to reproduce?

Should we do anything here to prevent such problems hitting other people?
For example, remove those flags from fluxbox's Makefile and add an entry
