Sure thing; last time I looked, I saw a 10% or so speedup when compiling 
pixman with MSVC instead of gcc; compiling it with icc yielded a speedup 
of up to 30% in some cases.  This was about a year ago, on x86.  This 
isn't pixman specific, we see similar results for various parts of 
mozilla as well, most notably the JS interpreter.
