I've put together a trivial package to allow target cpu
flags for gcc to be automatically set (eg: -march=pentiumpro,
-mcpu=supersparc, -march=armv3m -mtune=strongarm).
I've set it up for the machines lying around the house :),
but it would be of great help if people could run it on
other machines to fill in some blanks.
If you're willing to help you can either install it from
pkgsrc (devel/cpuflags), or download it directly from:
By default it just outputs what it believes to be the best
options to stdout, so you can run it and if it has any
problems paste the output into a mail message along with
your cpu model.
In order to use it when compiling pkgsrc or a NetBSD source
tree you need to alter /etc/mk.conf (but that is all in
the manpage :)
It has been tested on NetBSD 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, and RedHat 5.0
and 6.1, and on i386, sparc, and arm. Feedback particularly
welcomed from Solaris and of course any NetBSD port :)
