Thanks - would be great to make this build.

This being close to freeze makes the situation harder, but the real
issue is that huge things like firefox and rust are becoming non-viable
on i386.

(I am very unclear on rust and i586/i686 (in terms of cpu target), but it
seems reasonable to configure things for 686, if that makes rust/i386
work better on most computers and only leaves out actual i586 hardware.
That however should have a separate thread, and in an ideal world would
happen post-branch.)
