I just tried this with -current source from September 26.


cpu0 at mainbus0: MB86904 @ 110 MHz, on-chip FPU
cpu0: 16K instruction (32 b/l), 8K data (16 b/l): cache enabled

Built with:


CPUFLAGS = -mv8 -mtune=supersparc


makeoptions     CPUFLAGS="-mv8 -mtune=supersparc"

I ran config.status without any problems.
