Lightbulb Linaro Android running on Galaxy Nexus [GSM]

I was just flipping through a few pages of t'internet when I came across this. I saw a few posts in some kernel threads, but nothing substantial, so I thought I would share:
http://www.linaro.org/linaro-blog/20...-galaxy-nexus/

According to the website:
Developers are able to create optimized Linux-based devices with the support of Linaro. For example, Linaro uses the latest GCC 4.6 toolchain to build Android, enabling Linaro's Android to outperform standard Android builds in benchmarks and real-world tasks.

Would be really interested in seeing more discussion on this...

How does the GCC version make a noticeable difference?

Honest question.
If you like what I do, buy me a brew!

To be honest I'm not really sure, and it's possibly just unsubstantiated claims...

He gives you the commands to build the full package, just copy/paste...

I am still pretty confused. I am a noob and have no experience with those commands. I understand copy and paste but do i need to d/l anything? I tried just coping into terminal but didn't work. Sorry for being a noob. I searched Google and read a lot but still nothing. I would love to learn more, if someone could help and guide me a little bit more that would be awesome!

By build I mean download the source, compile it, and upload a flashable package. Give me a couple days though. I dont have my buildbox up to download the source at the moment.
