  1. build: allow to specify custom tags

    mmalecki authored and TooTallNate committed Dec 21, 2012
    When building custom `node` versions (e.g., floating features/fixes from
    different versions) it's often useful to specify a custom tag which
    easily identifies build when invoking `node -v`.
    Introduce a way to specify this tag in `node_version.h` file or by
    running `./configure --tag="<tag>"`. Insert it right after the patch
    version (and before `-pre`, if build is not a release).
    Closes #4452.

  1. build: fix default dtrace flag on Linux

    shigeki authored and bnoordhuis committed Nov 1, 2012
    DTrace on Linux should not be enabled by default because not all systems will
    have the proper headers installed. Only enable when --with-dtrace is passed to
    the configure script.
  2. tracing: add systemtap support

  1. build: add --unsafe-optimizations configure switch

    bnoordhuis committed Oct 24, 2012
    Turns on -O3 and other optimizations that may produce buggy code with some
    toolchains. Use at your own risk.

  1. build: re-enable gdbjit, honor --gdb again

    bnoordhuis committed Oct 23, 2012
    Note that you need to start node with --gdbjit for it to become effective.

  1. configure: add a "--dest-os" option to force a gyp "flavor"

    TooTallNate committed Sep 9, 2012
    This makes cross-compiling easier. i.e. from my mac:

  1. build: fix mksnapshot crash on sunos

    bnoordhuis committed Jul 18, 2012
    Unconditionally compile V8 with -fno-strict-aliasing on all platforms.
    gcc 4.5.2 on sunos generates bad code when -fstrict-aliasing is enabled, which
    undoubtedly means that there are more buggy versions of gcc out there.
    -fstrict-aliasing does not give a significant performance boost so let's just
    disable it.
    Fixes #3736.

  1. build: partially fix configure on ARM

    bnoordhuis committed Jul 12, 2012
    V8 on ARM requires that armv7 is set. We don't have a good way to detect the
    CPU model right now so we pick a default and hope that it works okay for the
    majority of people.
    Non-scientific sampling - the ARM hardware I have lying around the house -
    suggests that ARMv5 and ARMv6 are still most common so armv7=0 it is.
    This obviously needs to be revisited sometime in the future.
  2. build: disable unsafe optimizations

    bnoordhuis committed Jul 12, 2012
    Compile at -O2 and disable optimizations that trigger gcc bugs.
    Some people still reported mksnapshot crashes after commit b40f813 ("build: fix
    spurious mksnapshot crashes for good" - so much for that).
    Average performance of the -O2 binary is on par with the -O3 binary. Variance
    on the http_simple bytes/8 benchmark appears to be slightly greater but small
    enough that the possibly of it being noise cannot be excluded.
    The new binary very slightly but consistently outperforms the -O3 binary (by
    about 0.5%) on the mostly CPU-bound bytes/102400 benchmark. That could be an
    artifact of the system I benchmarked it on, a Core 2 Duo with a puny 32 kB of
    L1 instruction cache. The smaller binary seems to play nicer with the cache.

  1. build: fix spurious mksnapshot crashes for good

    bnoordhuis committed Jul 11, 2012
    A variety of gcc bugs made mksnapshot crash with either a segmentation fault
    or a 'pure virtual method callled' run-time error.
    After much wailing and gnashing of teeth I managed to deduce that the bugs
    show up when:
      1. gcc 4.5.2 for i386-pc-solaris2.11 is used and -fstrict-aliasing is
         enabled, or
      2. gcc version 4.4.6 for x86_64-redhat-linux is used and
         -ffunction-sections -finline-functions at -O2 or higher is enabled
    Therefore, disable -ffunction-sections and -fdata-sections unconditionally
    and disable -fstrict-aliasing only on Solaris.
    The -ffunction-sections and -fdata-sections switches were nonsense anyway
    because we don't link with -Wl,--gc-sections.
