tcc is optimized for:

1) Speed of compile time.
2) Simplicity of implementation.

Optimization of the resulting binary is down around fifth in the priority 
list.  The resulting binary can be twice the size of gcc's, and runs 
noticeably slower.  Check the website for some benchmarks and comparisons.
