Has anyone ever compared build errors between native and tinderbox?
Why not? This is not a stupid idea.
What if the native version fails to build but tinderbox is successful? That
could be a hardware error, instruction set, make.conf, or other problem.
Will it hurt to compare? No. It may be helpful.
In what ways is this relevant or feasible to the original post and those
following? Reporting errors from a native build will let one know what
problems will occur and when on actual hardware being used.

Humor me and let me report any possible errors from buildworld on the
Quicksilver;it may confirm what tinderbox reports. The source was csupped
before my original reply and the build started right thereafter.
