well, the x2 thing I wasn't  thinking it through and you are right, what I=
=20
meant to say that so far as I know all S939-X2 are SSE3 capable and rev-E a=
t=20
least as all am2 are

so eventually, athlon64-E would be more appropriate (with proper man make.c=
onf=20
explanation)

opterons are not easy but it is already kind of advanced cpu so could be=20
expected more knowledge from the user and that he 'eventually'=20
read /usr/share/examples/etc/make.conf ... or not (if there were something=
=20
about sse3) but in any case opteron and additional opteron-E also would do=
=20
it ...
