There was a reason for disabling it unconditionally in first place.
That was due to unexpected huge stack usage if I understand correct.
Ingo's patch enebles unit-at-a-time only for gcc > 4.00 which should
have this issue fixed.
If the argument is that we suddenly shall enable unit-at-a-time for
gcc before 4.00 then we should visit the reasons why it originally was
disabled.
