gcc -dumpmachine issue

I am using the LFS 6.3 live cd and working from the 6.4 book. It seems that gcc -dumpmachine is returning the target triplet i486-pc-linux-gnu when it should be i686-pc-linux-gnu. I've started from scratch three times and even go so far as to copy and paste each command from the book so I am confident that I am at least typing in the commands correctly.
echo $PATH yields "/tools/bin:/bin:/usr/bin" Which to my understanding is what it should be. I'm not sure how to capture the compiler output but I did see that it was referencing i686-pc-linux-gnu. Clearly I must be missing some step here but I'm not sure as to what it is exactly.
