Patch did not cut and paste, so just applied it manually to gcc-3.2.2

Huge increase in speed here, though I am not testing like against like.

Had a new system ready to install KDE 3.1 so just used --prefix=/usr
gcc-3.2.1 + binutils-2.13.1
Time to compile kdelibs-3.1 .... 217 minutes
gcc-3.2.2 + your patch + binutils-22.214.171.124
Time to compile kdelibs-3.1 .... 171 minutes
Any more patches like that?
