You would of needed to select 486 in the kernel that's why your getting 
the i686 in the final system. They way you have your system now it will 
compile as a i686, but you maybe able to get around using -march=c3 
-mtune=c3. But my understanding of the c3 it's a i586. So try out the 
options and see what happens.
