    Yes, the special code for Pentium is important for it, as that code is
    faster and shorter. The last signature in string-486.h is of
    2000/05/09, so, if this is true, the problems have not been fixed.
    So, what is the real situation? I would like to fix the code, and it
    seems that I'm not alone :)
