question on optimizing fedora 2 CFLAGS to speed up programs


I am using fedora but i installed gentoo from stage 2 a few months ago and it was faster... I bet that's because of the CFLAGS... I have compiled a custom kernel and that gave me some speed, but I was wondering if the following is possible:

I don't want to upgrade my OS. I would like to remove certain RPM packages that are stock FEDORA rpms and replace them with optimized RPMS that I build myself from source. So, can I just build an srpm of GCC or KDE, install them and be on my way to a faster system? Or will this screw me up?

I did it myself with Slackware and Xorg seems to work 20-30% faster than normal, console stuff always work fast, so I didn't notice any diffirence, give it a try.
