+1

On Windows we are compiling fdlibm with "-Oityb1" which means:
   i = enable intrinsic functions
   t = favor code speed
   y = enable frame pointer omission
   b1 = inline expansion level=1

whereas on zlib we are using the default compiler args "-Zi -Od"
   Zi = enable debugging information
   Od = disable optimizations

I would expect it improves all start-up performance since we also have 
to read our own JARs.

Unless anyone objects I'll change the ARCHIVE makefiles to always 
optimize zlib:
