In general, WITH_CLANG_EXTRAS controls the building of extra tools such as a disassembler, and tools for working on clang itself such as bug reporting tools. I don't have a really detailed answer because I've never enabled the option. I've always perceived it as being something most people don't need. WITHOUT_CLANG_EXTRAS may cut some time from your build, but it probably won't cut it in half or anything. -- Ian _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
