Oh look, turns out MSVC *does* have a flag that reports where the C++ compiler frontend spends time - "/d1reportTime". So I wrote about it! http://aras-p.info/blog/2019/01/21/Another-cool-MSVC-flag-d1reportTime/
@aras these flags sometimes make me wonder how many other "hidden" or less known flags are available in these compilers for things like this.
