i specified it with CPUTYPE?=... and wasn't working for buildworld, had to add it in CFLAGS. also doing "make buildworld CPUTYPE=..." didn't work.

on my (old) notebook i noticed good improvements in the boot process, it was taking lot of time to start maybe one minute, with a recompiled kernel with ipv6.
without ipv6 with tweaked CFLAGS boots in less than 30 seconds (~24 seconds).
