I found changelogs, if you scroll down, there is an ARM section. Lots and lots of changes (most of which I dont understand):

GCC 6
GCC 7
GCC 8
GCC 9

If you were really curious, you could try to install different versions of GCC, and recompile something (like zip/bzip/gzip) and see if that made a difference.
Curious, yes. Free time to spend/spare on such a venture, no.

Thanks for the info and advice Re: gcc. If you don't understand most of the above then at least we're in a similar position.

The only thing I was already aware of in gcc-9.1 is the added support for Cortex-A55 and A76 CPUs. Everything else [ARM related] is pretty much news to me. Reading these changes makes me appreciate just how much everything would be affected, as you wrote.

Really good educational stuff. Cheers!

Isn't the better performance because the RPi4 devices are just better faster stronger?
Good point. I did the latest test on the Raspberry Pi 3B+ based on your [this] post. Thanks for the idea and clarity.

This is the reason for the full rebuild.

Now I'm beginning to understand. The fog is starting to clear and things are making a little bit more sense.
