But the lfs optimization hint says:
'On Intel platforms software is compiled for i386 processors by default.'
Is this not true?

I barely have any experience but i guess that a well-designed package should
have no -march and -mcpu parameters set by default, and, thus compile for
i386. (and the hint confirms this guess)
Or is it that the compiler is by default compiling for some architecture
wich it has detected during its installation? (also seems unlikely to me)

Sorry if this all is answered in the archives - I haven't look through them
Really A LOT to look through....

Maybe you could remember and tell me at least in what maillist I should look
for it?
