I think this is incorrect. On the Sun, -fast will set or modify
architecture specific settings.
From the Sun CC man page under the -fast description...
example% CC -xarch=v9 -fast test.cc
example% CC -fast -xarch=v9 test.cc
So we always want -fast to precede architecture specific options like
-xarch and -xtarget on the command line.
