What is the situation of GCC, is it bloated?
I'm asking because I don't find too much on suckless site about it
I don't have experience in any other compiler.

I also found someday TCC (Tiny C compiler - bellard.org/tcc/)
And it looks cool.

The site shows the speed of it:
Compiler Time(s) lines/second MBytes/second
TinyCC 0.9.22 2.27 859000 29.6
GCC 3.2 -O0 20.0 98000 3.4

What they don't talk about is the speed of execution, wich I think
is faster with gcc. But if I were create a suckless gcc I would
probably fork TCC.
So what do you think, GCC is ok? Or no?
