I suppose that as I get farther along with netperf4 I may see if 
gettimeofday() overhead is indeed an issue.

There is an even simpler way to check:

  grep gettimeofday *.c
    -> testSAX.c and xmllint.c

I really don't think it's a library issue it's only used by CLI tools
front end.
For performance analysis I usually do top down, i.e. run and then 
check the majors offenders for said run.
