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.  ;^)
