Yes, the v1.0 CD contains the Cygnus Code Fusion code that aggressively
optimizes for x86, and I've seen as high as 15-20% performance increase
in some of my FP-intensive code. I've used the GCC development branch
which contains Cygnus' new x86 backend contribution, and it should be
pretty close to what you get on the CD.

I'll be glad to host it.
