this is pointless. instead of giving the compiler more room to
waste time on optimizing something that does not need optimizing,
you better tell it to use a lower optimization level.
please have a look at: Linux-ppc5-xlf.sopt

there you have an up to date list of files that take a long time
to compile, mostly  because of the badly scaling branch prediction
algorithm in the IBM compilers.
