So I compile something on my AMD box which I expect to run
only on my P-III or P-IV box. The program is optimized for the
AMD processor. This is _not_ what I would want. Ditto for the
converse case.

IMHO, the control needs to be in environment variables and/or
in parameters passed to the compiler somehow.
