Noise?  I am somewhat disturbed by how often this argument is used.
In this case, it amounts to somewhat over 1% of the total build time.
It doesn't take long before we're up against a 5% or 10% slowdown if
we use this argument to justify a few 1-3% performance hits.

I figure it this way: the cost in disk space is more than easily made
up for by the decrease in compile time.  The benefit is consistent and
measurable, and therefore I support Todd's move to convert back to a
static libcc1.
