Default running old version of mprime for speed?

Im running mprime 23.5 on my xbox (celeron 733mhz) and I thought maybe I'd upgrade to something newer or something faster.

so i ran the benchmark on all the version of mprime. I'll be working with 1792K FFT length.

Below 21b doesnt have a benchmark option?

21b

Timing 10 iterations at 1792K FFT length. Best time: 527.895 ms.

22.12

Timing 10 iterations at 1792K FFT length. Best time: 529.130 ms.

23.5

Timing 10 iterations at 1792K FFT length. Best time: 535.243 ms.

23.9 and 24.6 both required glibc 2.3 (i run glibc 2.2.5)

I guess my question is I can't imagine 23.9 or 24.6 being any faster(at least not for a celeron) to justify installing the new glibc, is there any problems with running an older version of mprime like 21b ?

I realize that 8ms isnt that much, but when doing it 30+ million times it adds up to several days.
