If static binaries are compiled as i586 and then transferred to a different
architecture it doesn't mean that software installed using those tools are
also compiled for i586. The static tools (gcc, uname, others) will detect
that you are on a i686 now and will compile accordingly unless you pass
options like --target=i585-linux and such.
