How to build i386 rpms on x86_64?



	I'm sure that this must have been discussed before, probably ad
nauseum, but I can't seem to find the right search terms to google it
successfully.

	I would like to replace the freetype packages on my F8 x86_64 machine
with ones where the bytecode interpreter is enabled. I see that the
freetype spec file has a toggle for that and sure enough,

rpmbuild --sign -ba --with bytecode_interpreter --with
subpixel_rendering freetype.spec

builds me the x86_64 rpms I need for the x86_64 libraries I need.

	Alas, for reasons of my own, I need to run the 32-bit firefox, so I
need the i386 libraries as well, but

rpmbuild --sign -ba --with bytecode_interpreter --with
subpixel_rendering --target=i386 freetype.spec

fails, with the following error:

...

	Can someone please point me to the appropraite place to learn how to
build i386 rpms on x86_64?

	Thanks,
