How to optimize source code installation?

I try to avoid using "ready to use" Slack .tgz packages to install software, as compilation from source gives better performance. OK, probably that's true, but how to optimize this process? Normal way "./configure, make, checkinstall" gives -i386 slackpack as a result. I have PIII, so it makes no sense to create -i386 packages just for personal use. What and where should I set to achieve packages for -i686 architecture? Probably there are some compiler options to set, but is it necessary to set them each time I compile from source, or it can be set permanently in some environment variables (which?).
More detailed explanation would be appreciated.

I think it's more a question of the flags set with the "make" command? I haven't really been looking into this, but perhaps the GNU make manual can give some answers...I'd like to know too.
