I am attempting to redo a Gateway GT5220 PC. The CPU is recognized as:

CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ (2009.16-MHz 686-class CPU)

Now, would it be advantageous to set the CPU type in the
'/etc/make.conf' and possibly '/etc/src.conf' files.

According to the "/usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf" file, this is
probably what I want:


I am assuming that the FreeBSD 'make' does not support 'native'. The
version of 'gcc': gcc (GCC) 4.2.1 20070719  [FreeBSD]
