Default Gentoo's advantage: "optimized for yoursystem" -- huh?

I have -march=amdfam10 (Phenom) and I once watched the compilation of
ffmpeg and it said something like "CPU family amdfam10 unknown" and it
changed some of the CFLAGS (I can't remember which exactly) so I guess
something like this is already somewhere under the hood.

But I agree that a USE-Flag to decide over this behaviour would be great.
