There are links to all the flags from the Gentoo docs, along with descriptions of the common ones.
Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

Not really. If he downloads the P3 stage2 files they're already pre-bootstrapped for a P3. Hence he won't really get ANYthing out of bootstrapping.Originally posted by linuxdude
Stage 1 is going to be the fastest if you get it. Because you can edit your make.conf file to have optimizations on the CFLAGS= line. If you start from stage two it won't be as fast because the bootstrap will already be compiled. If you start from stage 3 then everything is already compiled. If it is already compiled it isn't optimized for your system. A good thing to do is print the documentation and follow it line by line when installing
If he uses the x86 tarballs, however, he WILL get some optimizations.

is AMD a sub category of x86 or is it in a catagory of its own?
