Cross-posted because the failure happens when compiling teTex even
though the problem is really caused by (XFree86|xorg)-libraries.
Ignorant folks (like me) may not know to do a "pkg_which
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXaw.so" and ask on the -x11 list. Also, this shows
that -Os may not be as reliable as expected. I apologize if I shouldn't
Don't compile (XFree86|xorg)-libraries with -Os.
Long, rambling version:
I have been running into the following problem when attempting to

A search turned up this page (not sure on the language -- all I know is
that I can't read it!):
My deductive reasoning skills noted the following details about the

2) -Os, a flag I have in /etc/make.conf
3) "bibliotek XFree", which I assume is XFree86-libraries (go high
I recompiled the xorg-libraries port with just -O (instead of -Os) and,
violà, everything compiles nicely. In retrospect, it was a simple
library problem and I should have known to recompile
(XFree86|xorg)-libraries based on the origin of libXaw.so.
Anyone run into problems with -Os on other ports? I've seen some ports
not compile with it (mplayer is the only that immediately comes to
mind), but never a delayed issue like this where it affects a different
