how would you define "correct"? have all systems boot with a SMP
kernel by default so that machines with multiple processors
automatically detect all available CPU's? then what about all the
users that are using uni-proc systems?
i think the current state of building a system w/o SMP enabled is
great. it's not that hard to do a:
make buildkernel KERNCONF=SMP
make installkernel KERNCONF=SMP
this is all covered in the FreeBSD handbook, which all new
admin's/users should be reading and following closely anyway ;)
