+# -mcpu=<cpu-type> for PowerPC systems selects the type of processor you want
+# to optimize your code for.   Code generated under those options will run best
+# on that processor, and may not run at all on others.
+#
+# GCC 3.4 supports many powerpc processor types including: 401, 403, 405,
+# 405fp, 440, 440fp, 505, 601, 602, 603, 603e, 604, 604e, 620, 630, 740, 7400,

+# -maltivec enables optional altivec support and should be used
+# only for G4 processors,  on GCC 3.2 or newer.  It also requires that you have
+# the alitvec option compiled into your kernel to take full advantage of this
+# feature.  Note: you should also include -mabi=altivec flag if using this 
+# option.
+#
+# The newer gcc has a stricter aliasing ruleset that makes type punned 
+# expression faulty compiled if -fstrict-aliasing is enabled.
+# That option is implied by -O2 -Os and -O2. Make SURE you don't have that
+# option enabled by adding -fno-strict-aliasing to your CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS
+#
+# Long term testing has shown that -O2 opts can be unreliable on G4's but work
+# on G3 series processors or earlier.
+#
+# The following is the suggested CFLAGS for a generic G4 cpu

+#CFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -mcpu=G4 -maltivec -mabi=altivec -fno-strict-aliasing"

+# use this mcpu option as it is the default for gcc 3.2.x anyway)
+#
+#CFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -mcpu=G3 -fno-strict-aliasing"

+# Recommended settings for GCC 2.95.3 only (Gentoo 1.2 or older):
+#
+# PowerPC 750 > up: this works on G3's and G4s, gcc 2.95.3 doesn't make the
