Hacking on lcc <ftp://ftp.cs.princeton.edu/pub/packages/lcc> to get a
x86/linux backend working, we are in need of some C compiler benchmarks,
mostly to check code quality. Are there any free benchmarks? Or could
somebody suggest a couple of programs to use instead? Are there any
synthetic benchmarks to look at assembler output for code quality tuning

I looked over the Byte benchmarks for Unix, but not surprisingly they are
written to force operations to be performed in spite of any compiler
optimizations, so they don't help much in checking code quality.
