DNS problems == no outbound e-mail. :-P If gcc does want to go with a gcc-mandated -pthread option, then we should follow suit with that (and it seems that gcc might), but I don't think we need a FreeBSD-only flag if gcc doesn't mandate a -pthread option. -- John Baldwin <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> <>< http://www.FreeBSD.org/~jhb/ "Power Users Use the Power to Serve!" - http://www.FreeBSD.org/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
