Is Gnome2 not supported on the amd64 ARCH?

hw.model: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6400+
CPUTYPE?=	athlon64

I've never encountered any CPUTYPE specific problems so far, and I have
GNOME2 and almost 1000 ports compiled on my desktop, plus the OS itself.

I wonder if "athlon-mp" is so different to be causing the problems
you've encountered or if there was something else that got fixed
coincidentally when you commented out CPUTYPE from make.conf.
