None that I've noticed myself.  It can eat up a fair bit of hard drive space,
but you can set that for whatever you want and in the age of big hard drives
that's not a terribly significant issue.

I can't see how it would introduce any vulnerabilities that a c compiler
doesn't introduce on its own.  But I'm not a security expert either, so what I
do I know....
