[RC5] Linux OGR code not optimized?

Hi,
I just noted this madness (machine is a PII/400)
- Linux native¹ gives 1,886,314.89 nodes/sec
- NT4² in VMWare under Linux gives 2,402,656.63 nodes/sec.

Does VMWare just screw the clock or is the Linux code poorly
optimized? Apparently it is, as
http://n0cgi.distributed.net/speed/query.cgi?cputype=all&arch=0&contest=ogr
shows 2,508,889 nodes/sec for a PII/400.

Btw: The speed for RC5 is the same for both platforms.

Best regards
    Martin
