Every time I make the thing hangs up. I never had this problem b4 and I think its has something to do with my CPU choice in my config file so here is the million dollar question.
From when is your current -current install? (no pun intended)
I seem to recall people not being able to build anything without hangs not too long ago.
Try installing 4.2 from binary distributions over your -current, and then CVSup and build a brand spanking new -current.
If I have a Celeron 400 which CPU type should I choose
i586 or i686 ????
CPU_I686.... 586 is Pentium, 686 is Pentium Pro, and Pentium II and up (Celeron started with having a P2 core with less cache IIRC)
