I was wondering about this for quite a while, but I never took the time to post it...

If you open Firefox and go to "about:buildconfig" it lists build information, including all the compiler flags:
Code:
-no-rtti -fno-handle-exceptions -Wall -Wconversion -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Woverloaded-virtual -Wsynth -Wno-ctor-dtor-privacy -Wno-non-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -march=prescott -pipe -Wno-return-type -w -fshort-wchar -pthread -pipe -DARON_WAS_HERE

So, what I wanted to know is, anyone know the story behind the -DARON_WAS_HERE flag?
