AFAIK the CFLAGS ONLY control the optimiziation, while the USEFLAGS only
control the configuration - if somebody built in some optimiziation for
mmx/sse, fine, this would be 'activated' by the useflags, not the cflags.
hm, about your CFLAGs, I suppose, -march=pentium4 already sets them (mmx/sse),
but this is something easily found in man gcc ;)
