Well, if they built with '-O3 -useeverytrickinthebook' then yes, but for
a normal -O2 gcc / glibc build, I think that LFS is likely to provide
more solid results than most distros.

besides, these people should concentrate on FIXING things so that
miscompiles become rarer, not bitching when someone broke their
toolchain doing something that SHOULD have worked, but didnt due to
(more often than not) a GCC optimisation related bug...
