Funny, as I'm being bored here at work while running performance tests
on our hardware and software, I came to the same conclusion. After pre3
i want gcc for sure, not sure if Glibc right away. Why not Glibc? I'm
just wondering if they're going to update Glibc any time soon. If that
happens soon, we may as well wait for it. If not, let's go for 2.2.3

10 more minutes and I'm outa here....yeah!
