I have run the build option survey scripts on stable/8 r210741
and have put the results here:
This information is particularly useful if you are trying to shoehorn
a NanoBSD image into a small-ish (ie: < 1G by the looks of it) media.
But it also provides a audit of our rarely exercised build options,
and as usual this run does exposes a handful of options that either
do nothing or fail the build.
Those options should probably be reviewed
It might be worth considering running these scripts on a regular
basis for -trunk and the active -stable, but be aware that it
takes half a week on a beefy machine.
 Some of the options depend on each other. The scripts obviously
are not able to do the full permutational test, but it would be
nice if it were extended with a list of multiplets that should
also be tested.
