I just committed a fix so that the only time -O1 is only used when the

build environments are using GCC >= 4.7. I suppose I could install an
older version of GCC on Linux when I get chance.
Thanks for doing that. Someday we might take it even further and compile on those certain
needed files under 4.7.x that must be done with -O1, others with -O2.
This is easier than it sounds since gcc will ignore all but the right most optimization
setting on the command line.
So really, you just have to set set_source_file_properties() on a few files and pass in
the -O1 as COMPILE_FLAGS or such (don't hold me on spelling), and as long as CMake appends
that to other stuff, then -O1 will prevail on only those files.
Sounds reasonable. It would only apply to the source files that include
the Boost polygon library. JP would have a better idea about which
source files would need to be compiled with -O1. Since my
-Wno-narrowing fix also applies to the Boost polygon library we could
throw that in there as well. If JP doesn't have time, I'll take a look
at it when I get a chance.
