make architecture options

I have Vector Linux ( Slackware 10.1 ) installed and I noticed it compiles my packages with -march=i586 and -mcpu=i686 or at least that's what it says in the Makefile .
My question is how can I make it so that it will compile for my K7 by default without having to edit the Makefile .

If you want to change the default compile options you'll have to edit the makefile.

OK so I guess the only way to do it is to install a source based distro like Gentoo or some portage for Slackware , right ?
I think I'll just go ahead and install Gentoo since I've been meaning to do that for a long time anyway .
