I recently cvsupped my -CURRENT box (about a day ago), and I noticed that GCC 3.3.1 had been imported, so I decided to buildworld so I can use Pentium 4 optimizations when compiling ports and other things. I have p4 set for CPUTYPE in /etc/make.conf , but when I compile anything, it uses -march=pentium3. I know this was changed because GCC 3.2.2 used to produce broken code when pentium4 optimizations were set, but now that GCC 3.3.1 is imported, shouldn't this be resolved?

http://www.freebsd.org/releases/5.1R/relnotes-i386.html#CONTRIB (under GCC):

*"GCC* has been updated to 3.2.2 (release version).

   *Note:* *GCC* is known to produce broken code with the
   -march=pentium4 option set. As a workaround to avoid this problem,
   setting the CPUTYPE=p4 Makefile variable (for example, in
   enables GCC's -march=pentium3 option instead. This situation is
   expected to be resolved when GCC 3.3 is imported."

If anyone knows how to make it use Pentium 4 optimizations, please let me know. By the way, if this is a mailing list, I am not subscribed, so please CC all replies to my e-mail address.

Thank you, I appreciate it.
