Last time we've checked (GCC 4.1.x) removal -fnortti and/or -fnoexceptions made real world programs 5-10% slower (up to 15% combined). What change happened in GCC 4.2 and/or GCC 4.3???
If you DO need RTTI and/or exceptions of course it's better to use compiler-provided ones, then to write your own, but if not... For things like gold abort() is perfectly usable alternative to the exceptions...
