pgcc (and also egcs 1.1.2) makes the MySQL benchmarks about 11 % faster !
There is no downside that I know off.

Another option is to buy the Cygnus toolkit from;  This
is very inexpensive, includes gcc 2.9 and gives you even better code
than pgcc!  (The standard MySQL rpm:s are compiled with gcc 2.9 !)

We use the following configure line to get a fast MySQL version:

CFLAGS="-O6 -mpentium -fomit-frame-pointer" CXX=gcc CXXFLAGS="-O6 -mpentium
-fomit-frame-pointer -felide-constructors -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti" ./configure
--prefix=/usr/local/mysql --enable-assembler --with-mysqld-ldflags=-all-static
