Just give us as a start a single file that the current GCC compiles so
much slower together with the numbers. Since we do not have access to
OpenBSD, we need that file self contained, meaning preprocessed with
headers. Others have explained how to do that.
Then file a bug report in bugzilla and answer to this email telling us
what bugzilla number it is.
The same procedure has been done by other folks where they saw a slow
compiler and they have taken the worst example and GCC developers have
started tuning. But without even *one* single example test case,
there's nothing we can do...
