Compiler Options

I have set CPUTYPE=p3 in make.conf.  When I compile my kernel I see 
-march=pentium3 as I expect.  I also see -mno-mmx and -mno-sse are set 
which I do not expect given that -march=pentium3 is used.  I presume 
that I want MMX and SSE since my processor supports it.  What options do 
I set and where do I set them to get a kernel properly tuned for pentium3?
