I’m trying to compile PHP with the best configuration possible for Magento.

Magento uses Zend_Locale that includes a utility class PhpMath for proxying maths function to PHP’s bcmath functions when installed. My question is what advantage does using BCMath? As I understand it BCMath is for complex mathematics not simple functions like working out currency rates. Or does Majento use this for more complex tasks such as encryption ?

So I guess my question is, if anyone can answer it, would using BCMath increase or reduce script processing times and what if any advantages are there to using it ?
