RFE: Switch default optimisation for Sun Workshop builds to -xO4. I have tested some Sun Workshop 6U2 build the last two weeks... looks stable for me...
Priority: -- → P5
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla1.0
Bugs targeted at mozilla1.0 without the mozilla1.0 keyword moved to mozilla1.0.1 (you can query for this string to delete spam or retrieve the list of bugs I've moved)
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0 → mozilla1.0.1
cls: Can we run the "nebiros"-tinderbox some days with -xO4 and look if it causes any problems ?
Flipped. We should state our minimum recommended version of Forte somewhere. Right now I'm leaning towards 6U2 if only because it's the only version that we've regularly built with for some time now.
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0.1 → mozilla1.2alpha

"Flipped" referred to the suggestion of putting it on nebiros. I don't plan on checking it into configure.in until we have a minimum stated version of Forte that we support so that when things start breaking with older versions (ie, WS5), we can mark those as unsupported.
cls: I am not sure but I guess WS5 was EOL'ed some time ago... can anyone confirm this (petez?) ? Current WS6U2 compiles with -xO4 and -xO5 without problems, IMHO we should make this the minimum Forte release we support.
nidheesh: 1. What's the mimimum Workshop version supported by Sun ? 2. What do you think about bumping the default optimisation to -xO4 ?
I agree that Forte 6U2 with -xO5 is best. Sun build it's Solaris netscape using F6U1 due to common build environment restrictions for Solaris 9. With F6U1 -xO5 works fine with sparc but needed a patch to build on solaris/intel. As long as you have these patches I feel safe that one can use -x05 with even F6U1. I am not sure if this patch is needed for F6U2. We have had test builds that worked fine with F6U2 with -xO5 on sparc. I am not sure if U2 requires any patch for intel builds. Once it is verified I think U2 with -xO5 is right way to go. Added Kevin Lee from Sun RE. He knows the exact patches used by Sun releases.
