I can confirm that your email is making it to the list, anyway...


I've posted several msgs over the past two weeks
stumbling on buildworld when using lang/gcc33.

...and I remember seeing these messages go by, too. :-)


Trying to build -CURRENT with a compiler from a port rather than with the default compiler is a wizard-mode operation (unfortuantely). I suspect that you would have better luck tracking RELENG_5_2 or RELENG_4.

If you want to experiment with a gcc from ports, try rebuilding a specific application and benchmarking that before trying to do so with the entire world. If you wanted to perform a broader test, consider recompiling KDE and X11.

It is not clear to me what problem you are trying to solve by the activities you are pursuing: perhaps you ought to install 5.2.1 or 4.9 from a .iso image and get on with other tasks, and revisit the issue of recompiling world later?
