I wholeheartedly agree with you on that David, however in this specific
case I just have to wonder if we should protect the users against
themselves and us from the users.  Yes, I know, I should've known
better, but what's the use in having CPUTYPE in make.conf if we _known_
it will create binaries which cause strange problems to creep up?  Might
as well just yank it and be done with the headache.

Opinions on this? Matt?

I know I am not Matt (!) but you can't throw away the CPUTYPE option just because `p4' doesn't work, while things like `pentiumpro', `p6', `p3' and such work perfectly well.

	Pentium-4 is known to cause problems, this is the same
	in FreeBSD-land last time I checked.

That is, until I get the compiler done... *whistles*

You keep us waiting dammnit! *takes out whip* :-)
