Is this build-flag used to build Kubuntu?
From the Announcement:
"since about a week, the GNU binutils have gained support for reducing
intra-shared lib relocation overhead. Via a special flag, you can ask
the linker to resolve relocations any uninteresting or only a certain
set of symbols always internally. This is a significant gain for C++,
where you normally don't make use of LD_PRELOAD's that overwrite C++
I've tested this against libqt3-3.3.6, and it reduces the symbol
relocations by about 60%, reducing library footprint by about 8% and
improving relocation startup time by far more than 50%.
On a fully internally linked KDE 3.x system, I measured a relocation
speedup of something between 20-40%. I've not done login time
