It seems like PGO is something that would only have to be run once in a while. The hot code paths are likely to stay hot unless you substantially rewrite your program. So you'd only need to run the profiling occasionally, then use that to optimize your choice of compiler flags, which could be written into the makefile. Everyone downstream could benefit from the improvements without having to do the profiling themselves.
