Well, yes, but it's absurd overkill for what you want to accomplish.
The dangers I'm talking about are things like accidentally deleting an
important option, such as "-lperl", which would result in modules not
building at all.
At any rate, I *highly* doubt that there's much to be gained by changing
the flags you mentioned: "-march=i386 -mtune=pentium4". Perl modules that
have C code are generally just very thin wrappers around external libraries,
and won't benefit much (if at all) from processor-specific tuning options
What exactly is it you're trying to accomplish by changing those flags,
anyway? If you're trying to speed things up, you're usually better off
looking at algorithmic improvements, not compiler options.
