A few weeks ago, I benchmarked that too (well similar). I did a comparison
between Kylix 3 and FPC 2.4.x. When I disabled all compiler message output,
FPC compiled the test apps a bit faster that with -va parameter. It wasn't
an exhaustive test by any means, but there was a difference. So I would
imagine Hans has a point, that removing any calls to message output would
reduce compilation even more.
