I asked because there's a _very_ common tendency to customize the
optimization flags by m68k platform users.  Not implying anything about you,
but most PR's on the compiler by m68k users have seen such contortions as
"-O8 -m68040 -fomit-frame-pointer -freg-struct-return -funroll-loops
-fblahblahblah".  :)

Can you send me the output of `cc -S ...' with and without -O?
