I also work in low level C code, and ARM assembler, and have
extensive experience working with gcc, F/OSS tools, distributions,
and the Linux kernel, since the day of the minix-list post..
In the #gp2xdev scene, we have pressed into use every gcc version
from 2.95.3 to 4.2 in order to get better, faster, leaner ARM code on
the GP2X (these are game coders who don't mind writing their own OS
if it pushes pixels a little faster) .. For sure, there are things
you can do with gcc on ARM that will result in fat, bloated, un-fast
code.. just as there are things you can do with it that will run
lean, fast and mean.
Your generalization is negatively bias'ed on the basis of second hand
details and in my opinion should not be parleyed without direct
experience. Ask your pals about gcc 4.1.
