i'd suggest to use a profiler ... e.g. gprof on linux, shark on osx ...
i also heard that intel released its vtune for linux for noncommercial
use, but haven't been able to install it on my gentoo machine (although
someone posted the install description on forums.gentoo.org)

iirc, it is compiled into the dsp chain, except if blocking or
up/downsampling is used...

hope this helps .... tim
