Compiling I386 Freesco Packages

I am new to compiling packages for Freesco but I would like to try.

I want my packages to be in i386 or i486 code but the compiler defaults to create i686 binaries because my zipslack computer is i686.

I have tried the following configure directive:

# ./configure --target=i386-pc-linux ....

This is obviously not enough. Do I need to add somthing like CC_FLAGS= or more.

Could someone help me to figure out what the proper configure and make command should look like.

    Control whether or not code is optimized for a 486 instead of an 386. Code generated for an 486 will run on a 386 and vice versa.

So check the generated Makefile for -m386 and/or "hack" it into the Makefile template for the project.
