Sorry, i want only to show why i586 don't works and i decide to make an
example with aa686. This was a bad choice of mine.

No, you be right and i only want suggest to have 'yes' and 'no' as now and the
new one 'unsupported'. Perhaps this can stand in the makepkg.conf as at
example UNSUPPORTED_ARCH="". Than people as Karolina can decide to write
there i586 in this array and makepkg prints an warning on the console but
don't stop.

Again sorry, if my English is too bad for explaining what i want to say. And
it is clear that you can't support all possible platforms.

See you, Attila
