libc now comes in -586 and -686 optimized versions in woody.

Now _there's_ a good reason _not_ to do something.  If Mandrake does
it, it's got to be harmful.  Do a grep in the archives for "help me",
and see how often the post mentions "Mandrake".  :-P  Far too often
for my taste, given its low penetration.

Why not recompile only your compute-bound apps, and use the time saved
to study up on what optimization is, and what it can and can't do?

Oops, I bet you don't know which of your apps _are_ compute-bound.
