[Slackbuilds-users] Is the default ARCH=i486

Is there a standard that the default arch should be i486? I raised an
issue to the Sbopkg team about exporting ARCH=i486 as I recently came
across 2 packages which have the arch set to x86_64 (quesoglc and
warzone2100). http://code.google.com/p/sbopkg/issues/detail?id=37 .
Quesoglc compiles and installs, but because the libs end up in the
wrong location, Warzone fails to build.

There's also a similar thread at linuxquestions.org

The applications in question are not x86_64 only, and do build
correctly when the arch is set to i486 for 32bit machines.
