C++ Compilation Times: An Update

Ian Wienand pointed out that dropping the -O2 from compilation removes the unitialized warnings from GCC, which are useful. Unfortunately a recent Debian upgrade broke my Wesnoth build, so I can't measure the time taken by "-O" instead of "-O2".

And Chris pointed out that gnome terminal is slow with anti-aliased fonts. My tests gave at most a 10 second reduction with no output, but machines and setups vary.
