I was able to look at the config file yesterday.  It's actually

     makeoptions    CPUFLAGS+="-march=athlon -mmmx -m3dnow"

In any event, I built mpg123 and it plays files and streams just fine.
Plus, mplayer and mpg321 also play audio without problems.

So far, it seems the problem is confined to just xmms on this system.
I'm beginning to think I extrapolated a graph from a single data point.

Thanks for your input.
