Re: Optimized compilation

I tried

$ dpkg-architecture -s > arch
$ vim arch
:s/i386/i686/g
:wq
$ eval `cat arch`
apt-get source package --compile

But it built for i386... So dpkg-architecture reverse every x86 to 386,
but if i686 is passed in the variables, dpkg-buildpackage or anything
next treats it as i686 !

But what is the purpose of dpkg-architecture ? In the manpage, I read
	dpkg-architecture - set and determine the architecture for
	package building

IIRC, some archs have subarchs that *need* specific compilation or
modifications (m68k ?...). How is compilation done with them ?
