Hi Jesús,

Pentium 4 is more advanced than i486, it could even be 64-bit capable.

So find out exactly what processors you have, if all of them are 64-bit
capable, use the standard ISO.  Otherwise build one for i686 (not i486).

I'm running CRUX on some 32-bit machines, I had to create new ports for
glibc, gcc, openssl, python and maybe others.

I have published ports for openssl and python in my personal repo, since
they work for both 32 and 64 bit cpus. The other ports could be harmful
if used in a 64-bit machines, so I didn't publish them - I can send them
to you if you want, but they are a bit outdated.
