Thanks a lot for your replies.

Sounds more than resonable that I wouldn't see to much improvements on 
the base system.
I went ahead last week and didn't have any compile or check error up 
till now so I'll complete it.
I must admit, I don't know to much about these optimisations so I see it 
as another interesting way to learn and add to my ever growing knowlegde 
of the OS ;).
I'll do some timings on the  packages  test-suites and see if there are 
speed improvements or not.
