I saw a benchmark once that put the speed difference between gentoo and
$distro (i think debian and red hat in that example) somewhere between
'none' and 'within the error margins of the test'.  Most distros also
have the advantage that you don't have to watch gcc humping the cpu for
hours on end.

Something to think about if you don't have time to spare and just want
to get on with the job, I suppose.


you are huge!  that means you have huge guts!
