    I was referring to majority of users. The way i thought it worked - it would cache components of app when data changes for recompilation. Which I was wrong about. SO take chill pill brah :P

    Relax.

    So, his original comment was a bit dismissive. What's the big deal?

    Not true when the cloud people want reproducible builds of stuff. There are other uses beside desktop/workstation.

    Which may happen once every 5-7 years or never, since it's 'install once use forever' system.

    When you do a clean install of Gentoo, this compiler optimization will cut the build time significantly.

    Oh... OK, thanks for clarification.
