Description of problem:
When attempting to specify a target architecture higher than i386 (i.e. i486,
i586, etc), rpmbuild returns an error saying that the architecture is not
I see no reason the architecture would not be supported. Even noarch packages
will build with a target architecture specified; the option simply has no
effect on them.

Steps to Reproduce:
Simply execute the command "rpmbuild --rebuild --target=foobar" where foobar
is any x86 compatible 32-bit architecture higher than i386 (i.e. i486, i586,
Actual Results: "error: Architecture is not included: i686"
Expected Results: The package should have built properly.
It's exclusivearch'd to 386, as it doesn't make any sense to have it built only
for higher archs.
Of the 226 Source RPMS distributed with FC4, this is one of only a handful of
Source RPMS that does not support a more advanced target architecture (i.e.
i486, i586, etc). Even Source RPMS in which a higher target architecture will
yield no practical improvements allow a higher target architecture to be

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
