If your code never changes and you just want to use target specific
optimizations, can you just statically compile as an installation
I think most applications using JIT (excluding .NET implementations --
which explains popularity of ngen) are at least building the code from
basic bitcode blocks based on some dynamic configuration, if not
generating the whole thing dynamically.
