Hmm, interesting.  I remember having a problem with "-march=pentiumpro" myself 
when building software on a VIA EPIA-M machine (sig 6, SIGILL).  I thought 
that may have been because the Centaur CPU wasn't exactly a 686-class CPU...?

Anyway, using "-march=pentium" might be worth trying, as well as obviously not 
specifying the CPU architecture at all (as you'd suggested).
