Right you are. :)
As I stated to Luchesar, in my last reply, it's been awhile since
I actually researched make(1) && make.conf(5). The last amd64 boxes
I built using ths CPUTYPE?=athlon-mp were on 8-(PRE)RELEASE.
In fact the only reason I chose athlon-mp is because one of the
first ports I built echoed that in the config flags during the
build. So without any research, I figured that to be (howeer mis-
takenly) the correct choice. :)

Thank you for your thoughtful reply.
