Just built 2.3.5 with -O3 -march=i686 -pipe and all the tests passed. 
Didn't like it when I set -march=pentium3.  BTW, you don't need to
specify -mtune if you have -march because it is implied from -march.

    Generate instructions for the machine type cpu-type. The choices
for cpu-type are the same as for -mtune. Moreover, specifying
-march=cpu-type implies -mtune=cpu-type.
