Thanks for the replies. The configure command line I've been using and
the output is below. It looks like the CPU is being detected correctly.
This isn't really a blocker for me, I can build it with -O1 and it seems
to run just fine, but I've never had a compiler go into an infinite loop
like that on me before, I was curious if it was a more widespread bug.

Fedora upgrades never seem to go that cleanly for me. There's always
oddities after they're done. I'll probably just run with it as is for
now and wipe it for F14 :)
