As you probably already know, you can build an i386 version and load it on
any system that supports at least the same instruction set. You can use the
486 or any other machine as a build machine and then load the finished
product onto the 386. I know there were a lot of features added from i386 up
through i686 but if you want to get a release out the door, how about
concentrating on just i386. An i386 build will run on any system, that way
everyone can get something, then we can optimize. Config files would be
good. I'm trying to get gcc to by coping it from an i386 build root image
available from the uClibc website (the link is in the FAQ, Is a pre-compiled
uClibc development system available?). I'll try to make a gcc package to
make this easier.
