AGA only :(

If RT would compile CPU specific executables, view might run a lot
faster , especially on a 060 as it has a different architecture than the
other 68K processors. Modern C-Compilers can optimize (pipeline !) quite
good. Many 68060-optimized programs run 1.5 to 2.0 times faster on a 060
than a 020 version on the same cpu.

I use View1.2.
