Yes, although obviously passing a CPUTYPE won't make a difference if
SSE2 is disabled whenever PACKAGE_BUILDING is defined.  Looking again
at bsd.cpu.mk and ports/Tools/portbuild/scripts/buildenv, it seems
that a maximally-compatible baseline CPUTYPE and MACHINE_CPU for each
architecture is defined for package-building machines using portbuild,
so the current chromium Makefile should be okay for them.  But the
same is not necessarily true of all tinderboxes or ad hoc
package-building machines.  I guess that we should just trust users to
configure them properly.

... for those people with new hardware.  But there are still quite a
few desktop machines that don't have SSE2, but can run modern
web-browsers, and these machines frequently use packages built
elsewhere.  I have a couple myself.
