FreeBSD 5.4 on a Pentium 4

Just wondering if anyone could help me out with an issue on FreeBSD which
has been puzzling me for a while and only now do I have the time to go and
figure it out.
We currently have version 5.4 installed but understand that the architecture
it is set up for is a generic i386.
How do I go about optimising my base system and/or installed ports to
recognise my CPU as an i686 and therefore make use of this type of CPU.
I have enclosed the first part of my dmesg output to identify the CPU.
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (3000.12-MHz 686-class CPU)
Origin = "GenuineIntel" Id = 0xf41 Stepping = 1
Hyperthreading: 2 logical CPUs
real memory = 1064501248 (1015 MB)
avail memory = 1032130560 (984 MB)
Many thanks in advance for any feedback on this issue.
