You do NOT need to do this.  This just adds a LOT of time to your
build and doesn't buy you anything except using a lot of space.
The common user-space RPMs can be 'i386'; you don't need
to rebuild them for each target.  So your common RPMs will be
in i386, but your kernel RPMs will be in i686.  That is normal
and expected.
