Most certainly wrong for those using FreeBSD for embedded devices. I,
for instance, build on nice, fast Athlons, then install in devices
ranging from 500 Mhz K6-2s all the way down to 266 Mhz Geodes. We can
always do multiple library builds and select the correct .so as we
build an install image for a particular platform, but it sure makes the
process longer and more error-prone.
You should see sshd key generation crawl on a Geode 266 with no keyboard
to bang on. ;^)
