Dropping pre-i686 from the archive

what would be sense in that?
the whole performance thing will clear out itself with the 64bit 
transition, since gcc automatically assumes that a 64bit CPU supports 
SEE and all the extensions and turns them on by default.

Furthermore I think that it is easier for a high-end user to upgrade to 
an 64bit system that for a library in the third world to get i686 machines.
And only i686 would not make that much speed improvement, since its SSE 
which makes things run faster and if you make it a requirement you could 
as well point to Ubuntu 64bit.
