This patch builds bzip2 with profile guided optimization, the --combine
option, and -fomit-frame-pointer:
The non-shared bzip2 program decompresses 7% faster for me, without accounting
for -fomit-frame-pointer. The libbz2.so library runs 4.5% faster for me. The
profiling optimization works a lot better when the all the code is built
together, so the non-shared bzip2 program is suggested. So:
cp -v bzip2 /bin/bzip2 # Not bzip2-shared
I also tried other options like -fwhole-program, -O3, and -finline-functions,
and they made bzip2 and the library slower. My tests were only with
decompression, of a gcc tarball, but compression should also be faster.
There are also other bzip2 packages that do parallel/multithread compression,
but not parallel decompression.
