A few years ago I tried compiling with -Os for my epia M10000 and found the 
performance to be very poor.  Now I compile with -O3 for all my machines.  As

The problem with the xorg-server is probably due to the developers using -O2 
and not testing it with -Os.  It also could be a problem with the compiler
