AFAIK, that's a proper setting for Athlons. What I recommend is you
shouldn't play with make options before setting up a stable system
(sorry if that's too obvious).

I don't have much experience with CURRENT (and with SMP) but if you
didn't change the config files it looks like something in the code (this
is possible in CURRENT, right?). Only thing I can think of is reading
freebsd-current and searching the archives. Not much from me, sorry.
