I think in a memory-intensive program like freeciv you might get more
accurate profiling data with something like oprofile with a sampling
rate low enough not to disturb the CPU's cache too much.
IIRC when I last did an oprofile on my PC (an old one!) something like
1/3 of client time was spent just picking the next unit to focus. I
never got around to investigating the AI's cycle footprint.
