Kind of late piping in. Right around the same time you posted your first
message that started this thread I conducted an interview with Mark Mitchell,
GCC's release manager and he also mentioned work was being done on this kind
of patch (I think I mentioned this interview at least on lfs-chat), so I went
and did some testing.
I didn't see any actual compile time differences here with C++ projects, so
here ya go. A link to an article I wrote at work (OSDN) a while back now:
The main beef is a 20 minute decrease in ompiling qt-3.1.1 which I found
pretty exciting. All of KDE has gone down by a whole lot. I didn't keep track
of how much time I saved on a KDE installation but it's probably somewhere
between 30 mins and an hour.
Anyways, old news now I know. If nothing else it'll make a nice archive entry.
