Let's keep in mind that we are talking about going back to how things were only 3 weeks ago, so I see this as about juggling recent changes that are not stable at freeze start time. So I don't see this optimization being missing from binary packages of one more branch as a big deal. But, If it builds and works, then I have absolutely no problem with it staying. MesaLib failed to build in the recent joyent Linux bulk build, blocking thousands of packages, and there was a report yesterday that it fails on Ubuntu. I misremembered the error from the mail, and thought it matched the "llvm option fails on Darwin" signature, not the "llvm option fails becuase of llvm 4.0" signature. So how about we amend this to: The options.mk will be changed to enable the llvm option on platforms where it is known to actually build and work. and if you or anyone else can confirm that once the patch hits the tree that builds on Linux, totally fine to have it there. I'll change it to NetBSD and Linux, since while you didn't actually say it, you seem to think it will build and work once Mark commits the patch.
