Why does FBSD always assume it's on an 8080 CPU?

Thank you Kris, and all who took the time to respond.

Yea, I discovered that shortly after my response - the build of Python and
Perl barfed using the long CFLAGS+= string. I shortened it to simply:
Why? You ask? Well, in the past (late 4, and all 5.x) many (most?) builds
continued to echo the MNO-CPUFEATURE that the kernel always recognised &
echoed during boot (All INTEL PIII's). But it appears that MAKE & 6 have
no trouble with just the CPUTYPE?= , as everything that I've built (some
100+ apps) echo: -march=athlon-4 -march=athlon-4 during the entire build.
*Clearly* reinforcing your /brilliant/ and /insightful/ response. :)
I LOVE 6! I must admit, I was apprehensive about upgrading any further
along than I had. Things got a bit wobbly towards the end of 4 and all
through 5 - for me on the 55 some servers I'm running here. But WOW!
What a change. Smoothe as silk and MUCH faster. Thank you Kris, and all
whom contributed to this WONDERFUL next phase/ version! I got my first copy
more years ago than I care to admit. A search for "where's ELVI" in
altavista turned up a copy on a campus server (we all know /which/ campus).
No I wasn't a student. But it was just sitting there, and I couldn't
resist. I downloaded everything and loaded it - Goodbye M$DOS; the rest
was history. I was hooked. I never looked back. :)
Thanks again, and to who made this possible.
