Thank you for the reply. Out of curiosity, if I were to optimize for  
i686 as opposed to Pentium 3, would that help fix the problem (and if  
so, what kind of speed difference would there be)? Is there even much  
of a speed bump using this march setting or is it just not worth  
having at all? I noticed that several compiles in there used the -O2  
optimization which I did not specify, so I know that the Port uses  
some custom optimization; could these also be a culprit? What  
optimization settings do you all recommend for such a system:

Pentium III 450 MHz // 320 MB RAM

Thank you again for your help.
