Build Options Survey run

Bjoern A. Zeeb-2
Hi,

phk had asked me to run a build options survey again.  It took about two weeks to go through all of them.  The results are here:

https://people.freebsd.org/~bz/build_option_survey_20151017/

There are plans to run it more often again and improve it a bit.  No promises on the actual timeline but it’ll happen.

Meanwhile you can go and look at things and improve them ;-)

Cheers,
Bjoern

While not all combinations tested were valid combinations, many that failed are. Some of them look to be relatively easy to fix, while others are much harder.

Many thanks!

It's actually a good beginner task if anybody wants to do something
for the project which requires just a machine and some shell
programming.

My old script can be improved in a lot of ways, the most productive
would probably be to make it incremental rather than one big batch
job.  (Something like:  Test any options for which there are no
results, otherwise retest the option with the oldest result.)

If one _really_ wanted to burn CPU cycles, my testing years back revealed
many combinations where options are incompatible.  (NB: Today we have almost
four times as many options as then and we're into N! territory here...)

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.

Can you put the MK_FOO column at the end so it doesn't push everything
else off the Right hand side of the screen?
