8.1 RELEASE  32bit

# gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.2.1 20070719  [FreeBSD]

As per:
core2 is supported

Setting CPUTYPE(for i386) to:  "nocona", "core" or "core2", will at
the end, ALWAYS set CPUTYPE to:  "prescott", which again results in
MACHINE_CPU = sse3 sse2 sse i686 mmx i586 i486 i386

CPUTYPE?=native is nowhere mentioned "in FreeBSD"
