If your x86-based machine is having "weird problems" other than simply
running a couple % slower on i386-compiled code, you have a lot more worries
than just software or compilers.  <evil grin>

(I'm not playing devil's advocate, just the part of pedant wrt the --
perhaps unintended -- inference that i386-compatible binaries have problems
on newer x86 architectures.  They shouldn't; rather, they just run a
fraction slower, because the better extended opcodes introduced in the 486
and later lines are not being used.)
