I have a question here, regarding this:

   To include DTrace support in a 64-bit binary, specify --enable-dtrace
   and DTRACEFLAGS="-64" to configure.

The dtrace documentation says that dtrace automatically picks the right build environment. Something is wrong here. Either the dtrace documentation or ours.

I didn't presume to question Robert's technical notes

Robert, Can you throw any light on this? Or do you have any further
comments on the docs?

I'm not dtrace guru, but I think that main reason for 64-bit flag is that dtrace generates header file/code for probes during preprocessing time and it don't know nothing about compiler switch. The probe code/ data structure is different on 32/64-bit.

However, if you run dtrace script that dtrace detects automatically "build environment" (if binary is 32 or 64bits).

Robert, please correct me if I wrong.
