I just managed to built on HEAD with gcc 4.6, HiPE and dtrace enabled.
However, I’m running amd64.  I suspect that might be i386 thing as
i386 is definitely getting less testing exposure.

Yes, I’d say this is the best way to go.

I don’t have any of those set.  As far as I know you don’t need frame pointers
and symbols for dtrace to work as it uses CTF, but I may be wrong (I don’t know
much about dtrace, unfortunately).
