   That does not seem correct? I have never seen a Windows build of 
anything go faster on Windows than on Linux or macOS give those are 
running on the exact same hardware.

And when you state "GCC" builds are you using GCC from MacPorts, 
Homebrew or somewhere else? because Apple has not shipped GCC (at least 
a recent version) in a long time.
