So, you have cpuid.h where it is supposed to be, but the working GCC
does not use it?
I think you should gut config.log of the failing glibc build and find
the compiler output for the failing test. It will likely be somewhere
in the middle of the file, and should contain the necessary information
to diagnose the problem. Post it.

I would also want to think of your CPU. Are you _sure_ it is i686? Ran
config.guess or 'uname -m'? AFAIK, distros do not build i686 binaries,
they build i486 or i586 binaries. So that can be a good place for all
sorts of interesting things to happen.
