That could become quite a project. > FWIW, I don't think there are any secret flags you can set to improve > the compiler targetting, as the defaults are already appropriate. These are not 'secret' flags: http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-3.4.6/gcc/SPARC-Options.html#SPARC-Options Also look a this: http://www.osnews.com/story.php/6136/SPARC-Optimizations-With-GCC/page1 gcc by default creates v7 code which is a fair bit slower on a v9 CPU than v9 code. And I can't find anything that suggests that FreeBSD has any default flags that take this into account.
