This is the gnu version of the target architecture - for example when you do
gcc -v on i386 linux it reports:
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-linux/220.127.116.11/specs
So for i386 the gnu build architecture is i486.
gcc -v on i386 linux reports /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-gnu/18.104.22.168/specs, I'm
The thing is that gcc only uses i486-linux because it's configured
with $(ARCH)-linux, which is ARCH=$(shell dpkg
--print-gnu-build-architecture), dpkg uses i486 because its hacked
autoconf macros force anything > i486 to still be seen as i486.
