At least on Mac OS X/i386, we are pretty close to that currently as far as compiling the compiler with itself is concerned:
* Compiling it with 2.4.2:
* Compiling it with 2.5.1:
The reason I'm specifically mentioning the used platform is that there's one new Mac OS X/i386-specific optimization in 2.5.1 (more efficient PIC trampolines, and PIC is enabled by default on that platform), although I cannot imagine that it would be completely (or even largely) responsible for an 8% speedup.
