Guess it'll > have to wait here... There are cases when things break in one or another way if you enable optimizations for all the builds, in make.conf. The warning near the description of CFLAGS in `/usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf' is there exactly to avoid this sort of thing: # Note that optimization settings other than -O and -O2 are not recommended # or supported for compiling the world or the kernel - please revert any # nonstandard optimization settings to "-O" or -O2 before submitting bug # reports without patches to the developers. So, unless there is a measurable performance gain which doesn't also result in strange build- or runtime errors, I guess you don't need to worry about it too much :) _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
