Actually, section 3.17.14 in the gcc 4.2.0 docs (Intel 386 and AMD
x86-64 Options) states that there is now also available a new "native"
CPU type, which will cause gcc to determine the CPU type of the build
machine and generate code for the same.  No more guesswork needed on
the part of the user!

I've already tried it here, setting "CPUTYPE=native" in /etc/make.conf,
and it works fine.  Pretty nifty, huh?  :-)

I don't know if this is available for other architectures, haven't
looked to see.
