I suspect they know. It's getting better across 4.x as a whole. Also I'm really not excited about filing a bug "these 5 big applications that I don't really understand all do much better on gcc 3.x on i386 and amd64. Here's your several hundred thousand line testcase."
If I was the developer of them maybe, or if they were were more managably sized, or if I hadn't read through other bug entries where it's discussed that there are (supposedly) no automated performance regression tests at all.
I'm certainly not really intending my observations as complaints, it's just a matter of fact observation. I wish it wasn't so but it is, and I suspect half-assed bugs will only cost the project.
