No kidding, for templated, inlined code like RCF, I've found huge differences in
performance just by compiling the same program with a different compiler. Modern
versions of Visual C++ and CodeWarrior come out the best, while gcc (3.x) is a
real slowpoke, producing code that is both fat and slow.
Hopefully with successive compiler releases those differences will fade, but who
