I'll answer in this mail only, since two threads about the same is kinda
worthless. :)  Anyway, yes, I did compile with
--enable-runtime-cpudetection, and it spat out that error/warning. Since
my system is rather fast, I haven't seen any major slowdowns, though.

And I can contact the relevant FreeBSD developers and let them know
about this, although I should point out that I'm tracking 5.0-CURRENT on
that machine, which can cause a number of hiccups. :)  It's also
notorious for being generally unstable and un-pleasant, depending on how
you like daily panics etc. Anyway, I'll drop them an email.
