I attended a talk by one of the PathScale folks on the IBM booth.
The compilers are based on the Open64 sources released under GPL by
SGI. (Presumably they have some expert GPL lawyers).
The SPEC numbers quoted were unlabelled as to whether they were peak
or base.
Some marginally conflicting claims were made :-
  The only compiler designed from the ground up for Opteron
  A stable code base from Open64
(presumably they mean the code-generator was designed from scratch for
Opteron).
