Although pentium, or even pentiumpro optimization would be nice but
really isn't very practical most of the time.  If you have apps which
you do like and would benifit from these optimization.  Then my
recommendation would be to download the source packages and make your
own.  I do them on ocassion, but they only stay on my system.
