FreeBSD 6.0R don't support 386 processors according to the release 
notes, maybe it's time to change the name of the i386 platform to the 
x86 platform.

Not very important issue for me but it feels little strange to have a 
i386 platform that don't support/work on i386 processors.

"Support for 80386 processors (the I386_CPU kernel configuration option) 
has been removed. Users running this class of CPU should use FreeBSD 
5./X/ or earlier."
