The ability to squeze the absolute max out using /etc/make.conf  is
what I love about ports.

CFLAGS= -O -m3dnow -msse -mmmx  -pipe
CXXFLAGS+= -fmemoize-lookups -fsave-memoized -m3dnow -msse -mmmx

or something like that ^_^

afaik all packages for 4x defualt to i386 and on 5x i486 so there is
less optimizations... for something there is no noticeable
differneces... for something there are...  my suggestion is to make
sure stuff that eats cpu time is optimized... 

man ports
man make.conf
