What is somewhat amusing about the test is that the one major 
advantage of the Gentoo approach is that you *could* create two
otherwise identical systems except for compiler flags quite easily,
something that would be fairly hard with more conventional 
systems.

But the tester hasn't (as far as I can see) done this, and just
jumps to the conclusion that compiler flags are responsible for the
major speed differences.
