Yes, this was the problem. I rebuilt world with -march=pentium3 and that did
I'm not sure how CPUTYPE gets handled, but perhaps p4 should expand to
-march=pentium3, if possible. There seems no point to generating slower,
broken code. Once gcc 3.3 is part of the base system this could be put back.
Thanks to everyone for their help!
