GraphicsMagick built by GCC 10 with Znver2 optimizations were picking up some more wins.

But as is generally the case with newer compilers, they build code slower. Due to the extra optimization passes in order to speed up the performance of the generated binaries, that generally slows down the build times ever so slightly each time.
