I don't notice any difference in performance on my Athlon xp 2400
box if I set CPUTYPE=athlon-xp vs. leaving it alone.
YMMV though, ask the gentoo people :)

Also leaving CPUTYPE unset means I can plug the system disc into any
other old x86 box without hitting illegal instructions.
In case my motherboard fries itself again some time like the old one
did a few weeks ago I'll be glad I can do this.
