Probably because the CPU is called a Nocona by Intel; presumably the 
CPUTYPE flag would also want it spelled correctly. That said, there used 
to be no point in setting CPUTYPE because there's just one amd64 
instruction set and optimization profile that gcc knows about - I'm not 
sure if that is still the case.
