If you'll be comparing with my times, be advised that I changed my mind
about binutils and will use glibc in order to minimise caching. The
logic being that, since it is bigger, the main memory won't be able to
stretch and encompass all the files. Maybe.

I'm also thinking about adding something C++ based in the mix too.
