I'm playing around with optimizing compiled packages to run fine on Ångström, but the question isn't really Ångström-specific.

I've seen on Meanie's blog on building Firefox natively that he used the -O4 option in CFLAGS.

I've looked but not found anything substantive on this flag. One Finnish page on the web states that if -On has n higher than 3, then the flag is automatically interpreted as -O3. Is this so? Or is there a difference between these?

that's using the Spinal Tap version of the compiler - everyone else's goes up to O3, but the 'tap' version goes up to O4.

I wonder whether anyone will understand this joke?
