Ed: Sorry I missed it back in may on a...@. I'm usually pretty good about catching things like that... : What is "this" that needs to be fixed? Or, asked another way, why are : we not optimizing for the common case (building world on the machine : that it will be run on)? "This" is building the proper set of tools for the target. It is easy to do, and only a couple lines of Makefile foo in Makefile.inc1 instead of in bsd.own.mk. It is a fairly natural consequence of the tbemd stuff I have been working on and have started merging. The consequences today are that you build some extra tools that are only needed to build clang when in fact you aren't really going to be building clang. The "cost" is however long it takes to do this on the platform you are building on. This can range from a minute or two to tens of minutes depending on the power of your build system.
