I don't know either. The students forgot to mention it in the paper. My wild
is 400MHz and 256 MB (our standard configuration at the time), but this may
be just wrong...

-Ox is  the compiler switch for gcc (0 = no optimizations, 3 = max
Please have a look at "man gcc" (the compiler documentation).
O0: no optimizations
O1: common subexpression elimination + jump optimization
02: everything but function inlining
03: everything, incl. function inlining
