I had some problems with the gcc compiler in BeOS again - looks like it 
can compile BFS correctly only with -O1.

When looking over our Jamrules, I saw that the whole testing suite is 
build with -O0 -g - but having made the experiences with a non-
functional optimization in gcc, I would heavily suggest to not do this 
I would compile the test suite with the same compiler options as the 
release build will, so that bugs caused by the compiler can also be 
found in the future. At least, this would give us additional security 
that gcc's output is correct. If some strange bugs show up, we can 
always fall back to -g -O0 to fix them.

What do you think?
