It has been there until LFS 2.4.4. It was removed because the optimization part
caused many people only more headaches, because its not really easy to explain.
An LFS system is much more stable without optimization, so this is the way we
go. But anyone who read the hint can use this knowledge in the next LFS build...

There is no programming language, no matter how structured,
that will prevent programmers from writing bad programs.
