You'd want to use "-mcpu=v8".  You an go further and specify
"-mcpu=supersparc" or "-mcpu=hypersparc", but I don't know
which would work properly for the laptop, which I assume
is microsparc or microsparc II...  v8 will issue the missing
instructions, being more specific affects the scheduling of
those instructions, so going incorrectly specific will slow
you down...
