Re: Default to G4 on darwin for 10.5+


OK, that makes sense, but it's been over five years since Apple sold a machine without a vector processor (Altivec or SSE*), I thought it might also make sense to start testing them.

Other people test other options, I suppose.

Would it be a good idea, then, for Apple's automatic regression tester to start specifying

RUNTESTFLAGS="--target_board 'unix{-mcpu=G4}'"

Geoff tests just the defaults on his box. It currently runs 10.4. When/if it is updated to 10.5, it'd pick these up by default. The rational is, this is most likely what a user would do and the thing that needs the most testing. While it could exhaustively test lots of combinations, that would slow the testing rate, and Geoff prefers to not decrease the turn around on it.


But, yes, unix{-mcpu=G3,-mcpu=G4,-mcpu=G5,-m64} and so on would be nice to have...
