debian source package optimisation

is there a way to set what compiler options apt-get passes to gcc when adding a package from source? I have a set of cds for debian 2.2r2 but all the packages are compiled for i386 and i have a i586. So is there a file or option i can use to set apt-get to pass the arguement "-march=i586" when ever i install a package?

the only possible solution i have found was in the lfs hints page, where it says you can set two enviromental variables and that will effect most make files, but does this work for apt-get?


and oaf

the i386 doesnt mean anything in particular to your i586, your 586 is just a newer version but its all the same. a different would be alpha, risc, etc
