help building src rpms


im trying to build a src rpm,

this command:

[root@localhost rmmeroot]# rpmbuild --rebuild --target `uname -m` xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-8.23.7-4.lvn5.src.rpm

gives:

Building for target i686
error: Architecture is not included: i686

so would this be acceptable to run on my machine instead?

[root@localhost rmmeroot]# rpmbuild --rebuild --target i386 xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-8.23.7-4.lvn5.src.rpm


(the difference is i386 on an i686 machine)

If there's no i686 target specified: why not just *try* it?
It won't break things if you build rpm's as unprivileged user, like you should if you build rpm's a lot.
