Some aspect of this were also discussed on this thread:

Would specifically like to know, why i686 does not appear in `machine'
command's output. Does it depend on the kernel rather than the processor?

Is it appropriate to hack Makefile.i386 and change MACHINE=i686 in it?

Does the MACHINE variable affect only compiler options or anything else?
