Okay, recompiled for the i486 and it reports no bugs.

As for the i686, it is really a "Mobile Pentium 4 HT" Prescott series
(https://ark.intel.com/products/27368/Mobile-Intel-Pentium-4-Processor-532-supporting-HT-Technology-1M-Cache-3_06-GHz-533-MHz-FSB).
Does that make it a 'speculative execution' processor?

Thank you for the help and I'll test more of the museum pieces.
