Rpm fails to even read its configuration in that case, never mind
actually building something.

If you want to complain then to the idiots who made the decision to go
with .i586 instead of .i686 for x86 binaries.  This is exactly the kind
of problem I've been warning about all along.  Using the i586 target
stresses code paths (in this case in gcc) which are hardly ever used
since nobody cares for this target in general.

You haven't seen *me* complain. I'm mostly just happy that
- the problem got found
- it was somebody elses problem
- it broke rpm outright so it apparently wasn't possible to build
  anything, instead of finding out some subtle breakage in released
  packages two months from now (and this is what my comment above is about)
