performance comparison


Here're 2 new entries for MACHINES file:

PentiumIII  1400MHz  FreeBSD-4.6.2   gcc-2.95.3      752     757  2.2.5     IS
PentiumIII  1133MHz  Linux-2.4.18    gcc-2.96	    1028    1055  2.2.5     IS

The difference in gp performance is greater than one can expect from the clock
difference.  The first machine is SMP and has 512KB L2 cache, the
second one is UP and has 256KB L2 cache.  And of course one is
FreeBSD, the other is Linux.  I wonder which of these factors is the
most important as far as speed goes.
