yesterday, I discovered tcc[1,2]. It is advertised as really fast but
most of software only compile with GCC so I tried it with dwm. I don't
have the numbers here but the compilation it is more than two times
faster ! I know, dwm is so small that it is not really indicative but
I tough some people here might be interested.

Some funny trick is that tcc supports script mode with the shebang. I
didn't try it yet, but I think that dwm could be automatically
compiled at each startup.
