    Speeding up gcc


    Sometime I like to use bleeding edge svn apps but compiling them with the default slackware gcc is really slow.

    I have noticed when compiling in Gentoo that is much faster but I still like my slack-box.

    Is there anyway I can compile faster? How can I set flags for the compiler?

    I don't know about gcc, but I've used TCC in the past for fast compilation of non-critical software. It doesn't have all the option GCC have, so makefiles might need to be changed, but over all, it works just the same.

    I don't want to get my hands dirty by changing Makefiles, but thanks anyway
    Maybe you can help me with setting the option -pipe for the compiler?
