Also note that you should install the 'pentium-builder' package before
you start building packages from source.  From the description of

    Replaces gcc, cc, and g++ with scripts that build pentium optimized code.
    (Other processors can be optimized for as well.)
    By default, after installing this package, the compilers will behave
    normally. However, if the environment variable DEBIAN_BUILDARCH=pentium
    is set, they will enter pentium optimized compile mode.
