The point of the above bug report is that even no paths that could be sanely 
used like that existed, and still don't today.  Well except of course if one 
bases the dependency on whether some quite possibly unrelated modules are 
built or not (eg. powernow-k6.ko is for i586 but not i686, and p4-clockmod.ko 
is for i686 but not for i586) but I suppose you didn't mean that, and in any 
case I don't think it satisfies "sanely".

Fedora 1:

$ rpm -qlp kernel-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.i586.rpm | grep 586
(no output)
$ rpm -qlp kernel-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.i686.rpm | grep 686

Fedora 7:

$ rpm -qlp kernel- | grep 586
$ rpm -qlp kernel- | grep 686
$ rpm -qlp kernel- | grep i586
$ rpm -qlp kernel- | grep i686

After early 2005 it's no longer a problem due to the added Provides that 
contain the arch.
