Actually, I don't think it will work.

You shouldn't use 686 - these are i586 instruction sets.  But there are
some native i686 instructions, and they do run the risk of tripping you
up (as happened to OLPC last year when readhat put 686 native instructions
into 'as', with the less then hilarious results).
