I can't believe I didn't think of this before! heh.
Turns out gcc was getting nothing for flags.

I added -O2 to CFLAGS and my 60 seconds went down to 21.  A rather mild
improvment huh?

I did a few more tests and suncc still beats it out - but not by too much
now (Not enought to justify buying a license just for compiling pg)

I'll go run the regression test suite with my gcc -O2 pg and the suncc pg.
See if they pass the test.

If they do we should consider adding -O2 and -fast to the CFLAGS.
