I did some sleuthing ...

I compared build logs between --enable-pch and --disable-pch builds. The
compiler command line for the --enable-pch build has the additional
which causes precompiled_foo.hxx to pull in a whole wad of headers even
if they aren't needed to compile an individual .cxx file.  That's why
the build is taking longer.  A precompiled version of
precompiled_foo.hxx is build beforehand by passing
-Ycprecompiled_foo.hxx to the compiler, but gbuild neglects to tell the
compiler to use it when building all the .cxx files because it never
passes -Yuprecompiled_foo.hxx to the compiler.

That option is supposed to come from
gb_PrecompiledHeader_get_enableflags or
gb_NoexPrecompiledHeader_get_enableflags in, but for some
reason that isn't getting activated.

I don't see any obvious recent changes that might have broken this.
