Well, 10x sounds rather bad.  What I don't understand is why you
recompiled the applications in the first place.  There's no really
new functionality which would demand a recompilation.  The question
here is, was the original application alredy 10x slower or was it
ok and only the recompiled version was slower?  Or is the executable
from the same build 10x slower on 1.5.25?

Debugging?  You can try to find out which function got slower by
stracing or you could use the good old printf debugging in your own

Other than that, it would be helpful to create a minimal testcase
in plain C, which only contains the absolute minimum of code to
reproduce the problem, and send it to the list.
