ok,just bear with me.
We know that make.conf IS capable of additional modifications beyond simple architectures(i386,:arrow: i586,etc) all the way to specifying the cpu model.
usually can give pretty decent info about the model.
If anaconda was to query cpuinfo and attempt to specify some advanced optimizations for portage during the installation based on info gleaned from cpuinfo,this "might" make installations faster and smaller,and give users new to gentoo some headway that normally only experienced users have discovered in portage.
""Technically GCC could run without any CFLAGS, since they are extra options, but the whole premise behind Gentoo is to custom compile packages for your particular system, which almost always gives you somewhat improved speed.""
the gentoo wiki http://gentoo-wiki.com/Cflags#Selecting_the_best_CFLAGS_for_your_system
gives a verbose description of good cflags for many cpu models.it could be used as the template to set the options discussed in this thread.
You could also place a dialog on the same page for experts to specify their own make variables to use,with a help file containing info from the gentoo wiki nearby for reference.
Of particular importance: You need to make location choices apply to the gentoo sync mirrors,etc i am in the us i should be using the .northamerica. gentoo server to rsync,but by default sabayon sets all systems to sync with the worldwide gentoo server.
Your Humble Chicken Dog,Terlmann.
And please,dont argue with me saying that I could set these myself,I have!
I want to make this easy for others and myself in the future
