Because some code can't be optimised in this way and -O3 has been known to
cause gcc to produce incorrect code which in turn causes hard to find
bugs.  -O2 seems to be safer in this respect, but I didn't think that
optimisations were specified in the commands, or are you talking about
pure-lfs here?
