Ah, but that's the beauty of it.  Just use the makeahpkg script and
pass in '-a i686' and you're golden :)

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with
millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural
integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
