All to be honest, include as many fields as possible, but not make them 
compulsary

Please help me elaborate if possible

Here's the current list..

_Hardware Specifics_

Architecture
CPU
Motherboard
Bus Speed
Clock Speed
RAM Type
RAM Amount
RAM Speed
Video Card Type
Video Card RAM Amount
Video Card RAM Speed

_Build and Environment Specifics_

CFLAGS
LDFLAGS
etc

_Kernel Specifics_

Kernel Type & Version (from Vanilla)
Kernel Patchsets (gentoo, ck, love, nitro etc..)
Build date
Other Parameters
PLUS MAYBE AN OPTION TO UPLOAD YOUR .config??!!
etc

_Sys Specifics_

sysctl tuning
Other tuning

_X Specifics_

Xfree/Xorg version
USE flags used to compile?

_HD Specifics_

hdparm settings
RAID?
What RAID Level?

_BENCHMARKS!!_

It may be best to define what the delegated system task is.. I mean, 
it's no point running Xfbench for a non-X server, of course!

Plus games would prefer graphics and systems benchmarkis, rather than a 
DB benchmark..

There's a lot of software out there, that benchmark a lot of programs 
and a lot of subsystems!


Plus maybe percieved performace increases, like prelinking, editing 
boot-up scripts etc..



I'm sure there's a lot of points of contention there, plus a hell of a 
lot I've missed out...

Feel free to rip apart at will.
