I would be very interested in the numbers.

Oh, sorry. The fact that you saw the warnings led me to believe that the
examples weren't built with bjam.

I'm at least reluctant to do that. Given the abundance of platforms that
support C++ we can never be sure that there is not one where performance
will suffer significantly when the dtors are made virtual. From the 3
compilers I use GCC is the only one that a) has such a non-virtual dtor
warning *and* b) doesn't have a pragma to turn off warnings. Hopefully,
the latter will soon be taken care of...
