Parent article: Optimizing Linker Load Times
If I understood correctly, these optimizations are enabled by "magic" options (e.g. -Bdirect, -zdynsort), i.e. application developers need to put these options into their Makefiles to enable them. Of course, first they need to find these options and understand them. However, I'm afraid most application developers doesn't have a clue about these delicate details of runtime linking, so will there be a --make-as-fast-as-possible option for the mere mortals? Or will -O<high> turn these options on?
