SBC

SBC is a relatively old archiver with a focus on encryption (not tested). The author indicates that his informal testing showed a 10% improvement in compression times for the 64-bit compressor. Note that both an i386 and i586 compile are available; the version tested here is the i586 compile (meaning it received additional optimizations over the i386 that would be inherent to the 64-bit compile).
