Bug#198158: architecture i386 isn't i386 anymore

Package: general
Severity: serious
Tags: sarge, sid

[please don't reassign to any gcc/libstdc++ package]

Nathanel's summary:

A list of proposals what to do:

Some questions on this topic:

The solution I would favour would be:

- drop the i386 support

- keep the i386 architecture name

- let dpkg-architecture output the new configuration string
  (i.e. i486-linux)

- if anybody wants to start the mini-i386 architecture, we have to
  find an architecture name for it.

changing the dpkg-architecture's ARCH string to i.e. i486 would break
a lot of build scripts ...

comments welcome.
