I had not seen this post until now, and I'm not sure about the question 
your asking about. 

It seems to me, he is saying that using "CPUTYPE=?amd64" in your 
make.conf is obsolete.

Your error message would seem to confirm ths

cc -O -pipe -march=amd64 -DIN_GCC -DHAVE_LD_EH_FRAME_HDR
-finhibit-size-directive -fno-inline-functions  -fno-exceptions
-fno-zero-initialized-in-bss  -fno-omit-frame-pointer

-I/usr/src/gnu/lib/csu/../../../contrib/gcc -I. 
-I/usr/src/gnu/lib/csu/../../usr.bin/cc/cc_tools  -g0 -DCRT_BEGIN  -c

/usr/src/gnu/lib/csu/../../../contrib/gcc/crtstuff.c:1: error: bad

*** Error code 1

You see the bottom 4 lines? I see a "bad  value (amd64) for -march= 
switch" and a "bad (amd64) for -mtune= switch" . Try changing you 
make.conf file to use "CPUTYPE=?hammer", if that works go on to the 
next step. If it fails, see if you've got a similar error message.

Try removing "CPUTYPE=?< whaterver you now > from your make.conf file. 
This is probably the way that will work.

Please, send me this information, I need to know!
What is the supfile you're using?
Have you done a recent cvsup?
Did you dump the refuse file? Please do so if you haven't already, it 
takes care of a lot of cvsup problems.
Have you ever done a successful buildworld sequence on the computer?

I'm not totally useless,
I can be used as a bad example.
