Rebuild precompiled headers to remove error messages Apps
Whenever I compiled a project in Project Builder shortly after upgrading to 10.2.8, I kept getting warnings about not being able to use a number of precompiled headers due to a modified header file. Not only did the warnings annoy me, but they greatly slowed down compilation time. To rebuild the precompiled headers, open a Terminal window and type:

% sudo fixPrecomps 
Now I don't see those warnings anymore, and my compiles are nice and quick.

Would this also be advisable, if I definitely knew what's on my computer and what not?
Or is this just a question of teaching myself to be cautious and always on the safe side as root (which is a good thing(tm))?

It is just generally advisable to use full paths as root - especially when you are posting to a hints database for inexperienced unix admins (which all Mac users are now to a certain extent).

You don't want to execute a different command to the one you think you are running as root.
