so I must use --target i386-redhat-linux-gnu all the time? Or can I "map"
i386 to i386-redhat-linux-gnu using /etc/rpm/platform somehow? E.g. by
putting .*-redhat-linux-gnu into /etc/rpm/platform and then using the
--target i386/i686 like before? Sorry, I'm a bit lazy and just a creature
of habit ;)
