My last entry was a bunch of compile times with no context.
This post will give the context -hopefully!
First, I want to show why I think I may be on the right track:
iso-image ===> etc
make iso-image started at: Fri Feb 26 12:57:59 AKST 2021

At this point, it seems as if I'm able to compile sparc/32 ...including X...in 23 minutes. That started at 12:35 and ended at 12:58.
I haven't tested the iso to confirm that there's X on it, however.
Even if that has messed up (and I've no reason to think it has) I'm still in the right direction. What I'm referring to is using some of the more advanced(ish) features of buildsh. I have set up a per-arch tools dir and built the tools for several architectures. The quick compile time of sparc32 shows that it's paying off.
I have a shell script that still has some flaws, but will show you the general idea of what I'm trying to do:
$ cat ../makeit.sh
for x in i386 sparc64
./build.sh -X ~/netbsd9/usr/xsrc/ -x -m $x -j 5 -U -u -O $OOBJ -R $RREL$x -T $TTDR$x release iso-image
I'm setting up the directories, then the enviromental variables and having mixed results. As I was typing this up, my i386 compile crashed -and now I'm trying with arch-specific obj dirs -a change not reflected in the snippet above.
I also need to research how/what buildsh does with DESTDIR and how to set it, too.
