Has anyone tried PGO for Mac OSX using GCC?

I downloaded ICC for Windows and was only able to get a good build with optimization turned off. I was going to try to find the problem areas but didn't have the time and the trial license expired. I have two VS2005 licenses and I'm not crazy about spending more to purchase upgrade licenses to VS2008 though I may ask our son to get the free VS2005 and VS2008 Pro editions (he's a student).

I read the PGO directions (Ted probably wrote these) and gave it a try on Mac OSX and it bombed. I assume that it's some amount of work to get this going and it sounds like it's just easier to use ICC for Mac OSX to get better performance.

We had a lot of issues using PGO on icc. The patches I checked in support it, but it never worked for me. We had some Intel engineers looking into it, and we'll probably revisit it in the Moz 2 timeframe.

I tried a PGO build according to your doc. Build works fine. I can start Fx from my build directory without problems. But if I install it and start as normal user (non-Admin) I get an error, that "pgort90.dll" is missing.
I did my build with VS2008 on Vista32 SP1.

Sometimes I have to start it twice to get it to work. It seems to work fine after that.

firefox.exe seems to be linked with pgort90.dll. pgort90.dll lies in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin". So I can start firefox.exe out of my build environment, because it's in my PATH. But in a normal installation, pgort90.dll is not in the PATH. I could copy it into the Fx installation directory, but I don't think, this DLL should be linked.

Is there any way to do a PGO build without linking against pgort90.dll?

FWIW, you have a lot of junk in your mozconfig.

The PGO build links with the PGO DLL during the first pass, because it builds an instrumented binary. After running the instrumented binary, in the second pass the build is re-linked, and should not link with that DLL. The official Win32 nightlies are built in this manner, and they don't require that DLL.

Yes, I know there are some unneeded options in my .mozconfig. I have to do some cleanup.

I haven't been at my computer while the build ran. So I have to check, if the relinking worked. As far as I could see, there was no error message.

During the generating of the profile, what types of sites and actions are advised to produce the fastest build?

I like to visit a few "web 2.0" sites with AJAX, then run sunspider for good measure.

Depends on what you like to browse.

For reference, the official nightlies currently just start the browser and then shut it down. We haven't really tested further profiling yet.

@Ted: Do you have a FF3 PGO'd build for Linux x86_64? I tried to build one myself but failed.

Thank you very much.
