I'm curious - I have an AthlonXP cpu, and I seen on several posts where people have listed, CPUTYPE?=athlon-xp in /etc/make.conf.

My question is this, what are the ramifications if I added that to my /etc/make.conf now, after my current device has had nothing in the before mentioned file.

How might the above effect pre installed/compiled apps be effected.
Also - where can I find valid CPUTYPE? parms so I ensure I use the correct one.

In addition, if I add some of the "tweaks" such as
CFLAGS= -O -pipe
to /etc/make.conf - would there be any impact in pre installed/compiles programs after the fact.


No, nothing you put into make.conf will affect already installed software. This file is for setting build-time options, and as such will only affect subsequent software builds. And yes, rebuilding and reinstalling a package you already have qualifies as a "subsequent build".

As for valid CPUTYPE values, have you checked out the manpage?

man make.conf

I'm pretty sure I've seen it in there somewhere.

Great! So it only effect things after the fact. Perhaps I might consider recompiling WM's such as Gnome? Or worry about that when there is an upgrade and deal with it then via portupgrade?

Thanks -
