It's a broken expectation.

Your architecture is x86. You are building the kernel in arch/x86.

Your architecture is not "i386 with PAE" or "i386 without PAE" or
"x86_64 with VT-x". Those are *configuration* options.

If you want the Aunt Tillie "configure for my machine" option, that's
something different. And uninteresting.
