As I mentioned and have done in my "mk.conf".

Last I checked "i386" actually requires an i486 or better.

I run a few real i486-class machines (IIRC the CPU in the Soekris
net4501 is only a 486-class machine).  There are just a few packages
I build for such machines, although the build host is usually a pentium
III, pentium-4 or better.

For a package like "mpv", I find it highly unlikely that one would try
running it on a 486-class machine.

It would seem sensible to keep to the lowest supported CPU (i486), but
those packages demanding features found only in later versions get these
tweaks (just as firefox did quite some time ago).
