One thing that occurs to me as I rebuild 1.6 is that it would be real nice
to be able to query the interpreter for the compilation flags at runtime so
I could be more certain I was comparing apples and apples.  In my case, the
last time I built 1.6 was June 2000, so I have no idea what my compilation
flags were.  I can tell by the startup message that it was compiled with gcc
2.95.3, but not what optimization flags were used.
