It should (but you probably need a lot of RAM).

I don't know how aggressive they optimize, but the C/C++/Fortran compilers
from Intel perform what they call "inter-procedural optimization". Some
older DEC/Compaq Fortran compiler for the Alpha did it, too. I'm not
sure about Suns Forte (formerly known as Sun Workshop) compilers.
