I am using:

CFLAGS+=-O2 -march=athlon

in my /etc/mk.conf. But the problem is that I realized that I wanted
this setting after compiling a large amount of software.

My question is: Is it worth it (from the performance point of view) to
recompile all those packages again with -march=athlon? It's because I
have compiled octave with this setting and I had never seen it running
that fast. Maybe it is just a misperception ;)

BTW I haven't found binaries for i386 NetBSD 3.1...

Thanks a lot for your comments.
