I picked the flags up here -

The xarch flags used result in compile-time warnings with C++ 5.9, so
the -mXX options are really necessary.

It's possible to further tune the generated code using non-deprecated
-xarch options - there are details in the links above.

I've found quite a few issues with C++ 5.9, so we'll probably stick to
5.8+patches for now - at least until the obvious optimiser bugs are
worked out.

I've logged a compile-time showstopper (a ube assertion that crops up
in both 4.1.3 and 4.2.0) with, but I haven't logged a
runtime problem with the numeric limits configuration test which makes
it impossible to compile with any optimisation on sparcv8/sparcv9 (I
haven't had time to look into the problem).

I'm also seeing the support/atomic* tests timing out on the i386 and
amd64 - this is unexpected, but I haven't had time to look into this

Some of the tests are also hitting backend corner cases - I've never
seen the UBE take as much memory as it does now, and I've never seen
it use a whole CPU before:
