Performance analysis: LMBench disappeared, but...

Apparently, the suite for performance analysis we use, LMBench, is no longer available in form of packets. It is always possible, though, to download the source code. Procedure:
1) download sources from http://sourceforge.net/projects/lmbench
2) de-compress archive
3) cd src/
4) make lmbench
And in bin/ directory you'll find all tools you need!

On top of that, the following altervative suite is available too:

* app-benchmarks/phoronix-test-suite
Available versions: ~1.8.0 ~2.0.0 ~2.2.0 {gd gtk}
Homepage: http://www.phoronix-test-suite.com
Description: Phoronix's comprehensive, cross-platform testing and benchmark suite
