All fine, but my answer is still not answered (unless I'm missing the
point in your answer): why is %_host evaluated to i386-redhat-linux-gnu
in the RH build environment and to i686-redhat-linux-gnu on a standard
Fedora/RHEL system.

Is this an intentional, explicit setting in the RH environment, or is
it done for a few packages only, or...
