Athlon optimizations

Just a quick warning to anyone compiling stuff after reading the optimizations
settings from - Some programs really do not like those
settings. I've just completed LFS on my new Athlon, and packages like Perl and
file-utils had noticable problems with full optimizations. (eg. ls would give a
load of errors about not being able to find the files in the directory...)

-O3 -mpentiumpro -march=pentiumpro
seems safe, and I think -fomit-frame-pointer should be OK too. I suspect
-malign-double personally, but I haven't tried all combinations.
