Finding what processor a binary belongs to.

Hi all,
Is there is a way to tell what specific processor a program or library was compiled for? I have found the "file" program but it always comes up with "Intel 80386". I'm wanting to know if the binary was compiled for 386, 486, 586, pentium, etc. Is there an easy way to do this? Thanks in advance.
