3rd June 2013 - Linux glibc v2.16 causes Routino slow-down
Since version 2.16 of glibc the GNU C library used on Linux some floating point operations have been changed to use software instead of the FPU hardware. This slows down the Routino router by ~50%; this can be recovered by adding the -ffast-math option to the CFLAGS variable in src/Makefile.
glibc bug report and discussion.
