I haven't run gcc for Pocket PC compilations.
I run Intel C++ Compiler and unlike Intel is writting
on the Web Site, I did not experience any more speed of my
programs. May be I did't use all optimizations of Intel C++ Comp.

I noticed that Intel produces about 10% bigger exe file.

Test your programs with Intel C++ Compiler (it integrates with
eVC++), it is available for 30 days evaluation period.
