Fedora suggestion - build certain packages for i686?



Hello,

What changed would need to be made to the current Fedora.us package
autobuilder so that it could build packages for different target
architectures? Maybe if the packager notes in a Bugzilla submission that
such-and-such package should be built for (say) i686 to obtain MMX
support, then the package could be added to a 'compile for i686' list
which the autobuilder will consult when building a package?

More ambitiously, perhaps a package should provide hints of which
processor features it could make use of (MMX, SSE etc.) and the
autobuilder will then build it for the relevant architectures *in
addition* to the standard i386?

This is not necessary for apps that autodetect CPU features like
Mplayer, of course.

Regards,

Michel
