What is the CHOST value in make.conf for?

Im asking this because Im trying to make a custom livecd. Im trying to make it so that it runs on at least a 386. Xorg fails to compile. So I was wondering if perhaps xorg cant be compiled ON a 386 or 486, but can be compiled FOR a 486. Im assuming it should be possible to compile it for a 486, since Knoppix's minimum system requirements are a 486.

In the case that you can compile xorg FOR a 486, just not ON it, I wondered how to specify what the compiling host was. Im assuming thats what the CHOST value is for, but I wanted to make sure.

Yes it does. Thanks. :oops:

I did try to search for it, but I guess I should have been more thorough. Thanks again.
