Subject: Compiling mozilla/firefox with -O2
Date: Mon, 07 Nov 2005 16:20:32 +0100
The mozconfig eclass strips flags down to -O1 on amd64 with the 
explanation "more than -O1 causes segfaults on 64-bit (bug 33767)". That 
bug is two years old and we have a much improved amd64 toolchain since. 
I've been compiling firefox and and mozilla with -O2 and -Os for quite 
some time and never had any problems at all. And this is also what 
binary distros does. I opened a bug about it but nobody responded:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=86571

So please test compiling firefox and other mozilla apps with -O2 and 
respond to that bug so this can be fixed!
