How about -mcpu=i686

Since you are (re)building packages from source, would you consider using 
-mcpu=i686 for x86 (if you don't already)? However small the performance 
benefit, I don't see a serious reason against (from a user perspective). I 
believe that's what most distributions (other than Debian) are doing anyway.

This may sound naive, but some ex-Gentoo users would feel better about it.

btw, do you rebuild from source packages in "universe" as well?
