    Default Rebuilding everything

    As a newbye with freebsd 5.3 on a pentium 3 and many source packages compiled
    & installed from the ports, I've just learnt that I could "tailor" my box
    modifying make.conf. I'm focusing now on the fact that I could add a
    "CPUTYPE=p3" in that file to make the all box faster due to a more refined
    compilation.
    BUT...
    How could I re-compile and re-install everything to take into account the new
    directives in make.conf?
    Ciao

    Though that would only affect ports/packages you've installed, and not
    the rest of your system.

    I regularly cvsup /usr/ports and /usr/src and use "portupgrade -arR" to
    upgrade my ports and "make buildworld && make buildkernel
    KERNCONF=GENERIC && make installkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC && make
    installworld" to update the rest of my system.

    I still consider myself very new to most of this, though, so I'm not
    certain, but I think the system should be able to determine your CPUTYPE
    automatically, without needing it hardcoded in make.conf. I think you
    should only need to use this directive if for some reason it's
    improperly detecting your cpu type. Hopefully someone can confirm or
    disprove that for you, though.

    Hello,

    Using CPUTYPE= in make.conf causes the complier to optimize for
    the specific CPU. Otherwise, it does a "generic" compile that
    would run on any CPU. The two easiest ways to improve system
    performance are to build a custom kernel that has all the
    uneeded options and devices removed and to tweak make.conf.
    Before doing either, read man tuning and man make.conf. Also, to
    find out what all the stuff in the kernel conf does, see
    /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/NOTES (assuming you're running 5.x on an
    Intel or Intel-compatible platform.

    hth,
