I just stopped building on my weak machines and moved it over to a bigger one,
and now am building on it (phaeton) like this:
$ ./build.sh -T /usr/tools -O /usr/<target>-obj -D /usr/<target>-dest distribution
where target is the name of the target machine (in my cases, demon,
hermes, helios and cerberus), using different places because I
build each distribution with optimizations fitting for the target.
(...except for phaeton which gets built in /usr/obj and /usr/dest.)
Now I wanted to make sets to install on one of those, and I didn't remember
the build.sh argument (sets of course :) so I went help, saw param and my
curiosity arose, looking at its output. Well, and I was surprised to see
BSDOBJDIR something totally strange:
===> Updated /usr/tools/bin/nbmake-i386
BSDSRCDIR = '/usr/src'
BSDOBJDIR = '/usr/obj'
BUILDID = (undefined)
DESTDIR = '/usr/demon-dest/'
EXTERNAL_TOOLCHAIN = (undefined)
KERNARCHDIR = 'arch/i386'
KERNCONFDIR = '/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/conf'
KERNOBJDIR = '/usr/demon-obj//sys/arch/i386/compile'
KERNSRCDIR = '/usr/src/sys'
MACHINE = 'i386'
MACHINE_ARCH = 'i386'
MAKECONF = '/etc/mk.conf'
MAKEFLAGS = ' -m /usr/src/share/mk HOST_OSTYPE=NetBSD-1.6W-i386 MKOBJDIRS=yes _SRC_TOP_=/usr/src'
MAKEOBJDIR = '/usr/demon-obj/'
MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX = (undefined)
MKOBJDIRS = 'yes'
MKUNPRIVED = 'no'
MKUPDATE = 'no'
RELEASEDIR = '/usr/demon-obj//releasedir'
TOOLCHAIN_MISSING = 'no'
TOOLDIR = '/usr/tools'
USETOOLS = 'yes'
So... now I wonder whether this is giving me any problems, /usr/obj
contains stuff optimized for i686, the machine I want to install has
no optimizations (and is a 486).. Will stuff from /usr/obj now end up
on my 486, being unrunnable ? Shouldn't BSDOBJDIR be adjusted to what-
ever is supplied with -O to build.sh ?
Note I do not know BSDOBJDIR's effect, just saw it's a wrong path...
