Or his CPU might be i686, but lack cmov.

That's rather disappointing, as these are the kind of machines that
Lubuntu would continue to make useful. The alternative would be to have
a separate repository for Lubuntu, compiled for i586 (or i486), which
would kind of muddy the goal of having Lubuntu be an officially
recognized part of Ubuntu.
Sigh. Wonder if anyone's doing anything with LXDE on Slackware?
