I'm on ~amd64. dev-scheme/racket-5.1 was built with the following: USE="X cairo foreign (multilib) opengl -backtrace -cgc -doc -futures -places -plain -profile -sgc -slatex -static" The only other suggestion I'd offer is regarding the backtrace, futures, and places flags. At least on 5.0.2, one or more of these cause the build to hang forever at 100% CPU. Only when I finally gave up and killed the build did I notice the ewarn that these flags can cause that. I realize there's only so much we can protect people from themselves, but it would have been nice if it made me acknowledge that I intended to use a risky flag. Ideally, we'd just fix whatever causes it to hang, but that's an upstream issue - could we maybe just mask those flags? Although, I haven't tested them on 5.1 yet to see if they're even still a problem... Cyprien, I'd be happy to help test with other configurations. Thanks for your work. -Neil On Tue, Feb 22, 2011 at 5:32 AM, Cyprien Nicolas <c.nicolas@×××××.com> wrote:
