Default quick question about optimizations in /etc/make.conf

I'm still learning my way around FreeBSD. I just installed a system with Xorg and GNOME. I am about to rebuild world, and I want to enable the CPU optimizations. I successfully rebuilt world on Gentoo using optimizations, but I took a shortcut and used 'march=native'. I don't know how to find the cpu info on FreeBSD. I remember it was 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' on Gentoo, and I know that I have a single core Prescott CPU that accepts SSE3 instruction. Could somebody get me started on these optimizations? I know people say that the speed increase is negligible, but I notice a huge difference.
