Default stage3-i686-2008.0_beta2 builds kernel in x86 directory

Is this a problem, or simply a name change? The filename says i686
and I have 'CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"' in /etc/make.conf, but the kernel
ends up as /usr/src/linux/arch/x86/boot/bzImage

I noticed this when I tried running a couple of scripts that I use to
organize my production and experimental kernels, so that lilo finds
them. No problem changing the scripts to copy from a different
directory, but inquiring minds want to know.

Hi,

This happens with x86-based architectures, I believe. I use an x86_64 profile,
but the bzImage ends up in (from the linux directory) 'arch/x86/boot'. The
'arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage' is just a symlink to that.

It is probably because most of the base kernel source for any x86 based
processor is the same. I wouldn't worry about it, unless your system
identifies the kernel as an i386 kernel.

Regards,
Chris
