Isn't that a good reason to strip the value of CPU_FLAGS from CFLAGS
and CXXFLAGS in the floppies directory ? 

(devel/cpuflags, probably the most widely used source of cpu dependant 
optimization stuffs its values for the arch/cpu in CPU_FLAGS)

Just an off-the-top-of-my-head thought, not sure whether that would
help or whether rudolf's solution (only use cpuflags for pkgsrc) is
the 'correct' one. Probably somewhere in between...
