  Is 200 lines per second reasonable for DJGCC 1.11?  I tested it on my
486DX2-66/16M with a SCSI disk and 2Meg SMARTDrv cache, compiling the
makeinfo.c file (it has about 7500 lines, so the overhead of loading the
multiple passes of the compiler would be insignificant; it took about 35
seconds to compile [GCC -c only, without ld]).  I have QEMM 7.03 and QDPMI
loaded, but the GO32 env. var. says ``nodpmi'' because of graphics problems.
  I don't have Unix workstation handy right now, but I remember that GCC was
*much* faster on a 40Mhz Sparc2 with about the same amount of RAM.  Isn't 486
about the same MIPS as Sparc2?  Is there any way to improve the situation by
changing the configuration of my machine?
  The docs say to point GO32TMP to a RAM drive.  The problem is: what is the
maximum space I need to allocate there?  In other words, how large should the
RAM drive be?  And what happens if it gets filled during compilation?  Does
GCC die?
