Seems like you can. See: <http://www.webopedia.com/DidYouKnow/ 

As for multicore support, I thought it was better with -CURRENT (ULE2  
as of late sounds like it can support concurrency with multiple  
cores / CPUs better than the 4BSD scheduler), but running -CURRENT  
comes with a price, namely stability.

The GNU/Linux crowd (or at least some folks in it), were raving that  
later versions of gcc, i.e. 4.x (coming to 7 sometime in the near  
future maybe) had better multi - core / CPU support as well in terms  
of optimizations and junk. But that's just fanboy/ricer ranting,  
maybe.. or maybe not..
