That ordering makes little sense to me. The Intel compilers should be
the most effective on Itanium, where a lot of functionality has been
moved out of hardware and foisted onto the compiler!

Have you done these tests with a recent gfortran? (Certainly the gcc
people would want to know about it as these must be missed
optimisations. But only for the gfortran case.)
