Linux After reading a discussion on DistroWatch asking if users were happy with their current distribution, I noticed a common thread of those who have had similar experiences as myself with juggling various Linux distributions. Like myself, they feel many Linux distributions are great, but no one quite feels like home. None of them quite fit the bill and they may even begin to think that every OS sucks.

The answer to your question is, "yes", you can set optimization flags in Arch by editing /etc/makepkg.conf. I have Arch on three workstations and a webserver, have built them entirely from source with -march=pentiumX -03 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer, where X = appropriate CPU and have had no difficulty whatsoever. This from a former Gentoo devotee.
