I use an Athlon here, myself.

In my kernel config, I have:

machine         i386

cpu             I686_CPU                # aka Pentium Pro(tm)

options         CPU_DISABLE_5X86_LSSER
options         CPU_FASTER_5X86_FPU
options         CPU_UPGRADE_HW_CACHE
options         CPU_WT_ALLOC
options         NO_MEMORY_HOLE

And in /etc/make.conf:

CFLAGS= -O -pipe
