"quick" vs "perf" builds

In my mind the "quick" build should be like the "perf" build, except
building the stage2 compiler should be much faster. However, the perf build

GhcLibHcOpts = -O2

while the quick build uses

GhcLibHcOpts = -O -fasm

This means that if you're working on optimizing the generated code and are
running benchmarks to verify your results, the quick build doesn't do the
right thing.

Since the purpose of the quick build is to work on the stage2 compiler,
would it make sense having it build the libraries in the same way as the
perf build?
