I just checked by compiling AMBER with gcc/g77 2.95.2 and egcs-1.1.2. 2.95.2
is about 15-20% faster than egcs-1.1.2 for the exact same switch.
I saw no observerable difference in speed between -O3 and -O3 -march=pentiumpro,
however. I still haven't found the "perfect" set of optimization flags or
compiler version yet.
