Yes, original 2.95.3 doesn't support -march=athlon -mcpu=athlon switches.
Try latest CVS version. I've done some changes in configure. Now you should see:
Optimizing to ... pentiumpro instead of k6. PPro optimization
is much better of k6 since in this case gcc will produce
extended instruction set to binary output (CMOVxx FCMOVxx)

If configure shows you:
Checking for 3dnow support ... yes
Checking for 3dnowex support ... yes
it means that from assembler part you will have full k7-3dnow support.
Optimizing to ... $proc
means only C level optimization.
