For now, I focus on building and passing the test suite. That's
already a lot of work since MS compilers are very crappy C compilers
(lot of missing functions, no complex support, etc... all which has to
be reimplemented). So performances will only come much later :) If you
care about performance, I would guess intel compilers and one of the
numerous commercial fortran compiler is the way to go.

cheers,

David
