We shall see.

3.1 will also be slower on the Alpha.  It is really an issue of the code
generator.  Generating x86 code on an Alpha is faster than generating
[native] Alpha code.  The Alpha code generator is slow.  It may be that
all 64 bit or RISC GCC code generation is slow -- we will see soon for
the sparc64.
