optimization flags and kernel compiling

what kernel optimization flags? How would i change them and what values should i give them?
I don't know if this is necessary, but i want to compile the 2.6.8 kernel.

manually setting CFLAGS doesn't improve performance much (as far as I've tested), rather use flags that config generates for you, just select processor type.
