Re: [opensuse-buildservice] recompiling OSS repo on local instance for different arch

I want to recompile the whole OSS 12.3 or maybe when 13.1 is out the

the global flags? in /etc/rpm ?

It's probably better to put some "Optflags" in your project config.
They will be copied into rpm's rpmrc file when doing the build.

The OpenSUSE:12.3 config contains:

Optflags: i586 -fomit-frame-pointer -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: i686 -march=i686 -mtune=generic -fomit-frame-pointer
Optflags: x86_64 -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: ppc -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: ppc64 -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: ia64 -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: s390 -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: s390x -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: armv5el -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: armv5tel -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: armv7l -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: armv7hl -fmessage-length=0
Optflags: sparcv9 -fmessage-length=0 -mcpu=ultrasparc
Optflags: sparc64 -fmessage-length=0 -mcpu=ultrasparc
Optflags: * -O2 -Wall -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fstack-protector -funwind-tables

The '*' optflag is always added to the arch specific one.

Will this even work or are the spec
files full of hardcoded "if or" for x86 and x64?

It should work, as for openSUSE packages it's considered a bug if
the rpm optflags are not honored.

(But: does the 1% speedup you get through optflag tweaking really
warrant a complete distribution rebuild?)
