Include Qt performance tests (and compilation)
I haven't actually looked in the test suite to know if Qt is in it but i doubt it since it's probably extremely difficult to get it in and working.
However, Qt has a lot of nice performance test cases here : http://qt.gitorious.org/+qt-performa...sts/benchmarks which tells a lot more then a C-Ray performance test.
For example. Qt is used in KDE so anything improving Qt's performance (or sucking it up) is something KDE users are likely to notice if big enough. I haven't tested this, but assuming Qt compiled on the Open64 compiler i expect it to be several percentages faster then GCC simply because Open64 just beats GCC nearly everywhere.
Just my 5 cents.
I would be interested to see how this benchmark did for open64... Could be interesting
Anyone tried it?
