Debian uses "i386" for naming the whole 32 bits architecture:


I understand what you are saying, and would not argue with it. - but why then
does my system announce itself as i686??

You asked which architecture your kernel was compiled for. Camaleón was
talking about distribution specific names for architectures. These two
aren't necessarily the same. (Even to the extent that you can run Debian
"i386" on an AMD64 kernel…)
