For anyone who says compile options don't matter:

I've noticed a HUGE difference in performance between -Os and -O3 with xorg. With compositing turned on (on my crappy Intel 945GM), -Os makes even typing very difficult, to say the least. But I recompiled with -O3 and now X isn't missing a key.

I used to agree with the "compile options don't matter that much" crowd. But I was just proven wrong.
