Let me present myself:
- I am an advanced user of Gentoo Linux. I know quiet a lot about that

very well structured.

I am the happy own of a Dell Inspiron 9400 with a Dual Core processor in it
(note, not a Dual Core 2). gives some information about this
processor and about the parameter to give to gcc to obtain the best out of

Intel Core Solo/Duo (Yonah)
vendor_id  : GenuineIntel
 cpu family  : 6
 model  : 14
 model name  : Genuine Intel(R) CPU       [Model] @ XXXGHz
 (the above info is from a T2400, other models may have different cpu
families and model numbers)
CFLAGS="-march=prescott -O2 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"

This is a 32bit chip
Note: It has been confirmed by [EMAIL PROTECTED] that prescott is the
correct microarchitecture to use with this CPU.

So now, I am trying to rebuild my FreeBSD 6.2 system playing a bit with the
parameters in the make.conf file (see /usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf) to
get the best out of my machine (double processor, MMX, SSE[1-3] and co...)
#NO_CPU_CFLAGS=         # Don't add -march=<cpu> to CFLAGS automatically
#NO_CPU_COPTFLAGS=      # Don't add -march=<cpu> to COPTFLAGS automatically

So far, the only thing I did was to set CPUTYPE to pentium4 but I am pretty
sure, it can be done in a better way. The question being 'how?'

"prescott" is listed as an option for CPUTYPE in /usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf. So "CPUTYPE?=prescott" in /etc/make.conf should do fine for you.
