Removing optimizations from the book

Hi guys,

The compiler optimizations are going to be removed from the book because 
often it's causing more problems that it's worth.

I would like to see a hint instead on this, but I'm not going to be the one 
writing it (sorry). If somebody feels compelled to contribute to LFS by 
writing a compiler optimization hint, please do so. A lot of people will 
appreciate it.

I know somebody (sorry I forgot your name) is working on a cross-compilation 
hint. It can easily be expanded with native compiler optimization (as opposed 
to alien compiler optimization ala cross compiling). Of course it doesn't 
have to be done this way, but it's an option.
