I have one question regarding this alternative.

I already have this scenario set up.

Suppose that I want to save compile time on the remote machines
and that machine #1 that holds /usr/src and the compiled /usr/obj is
an intel XEON.

Remote machine #2 that will use this compiled code is an I7 and
machine #3 is an AMD Phenom II.

If leave CPUTYPE alone, will the resulting code run well on all 3
