My machine also has cpuid.h in
$LFS/tools/lib/gcc/i686-lfs-linux-gnu/4.4.3/include so it makes me wonder if
something is not reverse-compatible with my 800MHz AMD Duron.

I choose my oldest machine to build this in order for my new system to be
compatible with as many machines as possible. Could it be those that benefit
by selling newer hardware are discouraging reverse-compatibility???
