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/
So for i386 the gnu build architecture is i486.

gcc -v on i386 linux reports /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-gnu/, 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.
