Gentoo evolved, to my understanding, partly because there was a gcc which 
compiled something faster.  So, when gentoo was first on the scene, that 
gcc compiled ______ better than other distro's, which gave better 
performance.  Now everyone uses the same gcc and that benefit isn't 
really there anymore.
