I would recommend trying 1.40 beta, and *don't* specify architecture at all. Failing that,
see recommendation below:

You are using very old version of gcc -- do you maybe have some stale version in PATH?

I believe the valid options -- in recent gcc -- include:

        - nocona
    - core2
    - opteron
    - athlon64
    - athlon-fx

The above message suggests your gcc does not support athlon64 -- maybe it supports some other
options, like opteron?
