You can optimize Glibc. I guess I haven't thought of it when I moved it
around. I have run my LFS systems with optimizations for a while now and
another system without. I cannot see any performance difference, so I
reall start to wonder why we do it. Perhaps it's easier on the CPU, but
I don't think it will make that big of a difference. Opinions?
