s|add CFLAGS|install devel/cpuflags and add .sinclude .. as said in
the cpuflags(1) manpage| :)

Rebuilding then will rebuild your whole system with the right
optimizations for your compiler & target cpu. If I'm not mistaken,
and you want to squeeze out the last of performance, should probably
update the compiler (that is, not use the one from 1-6 but the one
from -current / 2-0). With your whole base system being optimized
for your CPU, you don't have to bother how to replace base-system stuff
by pkgsrc stuff.

Hth, too :)
