I will remove i486 from Th on 28 February 2015.

>From pld-linux.org:
Growing number of packages that either do not build for i486 or are
severly crippled (like IcedTea or programs requiring atomic operations)
with loss of users of this architecture caused us to finally abandon it.

Simply saying - supporting i486 is a lot of pain with no gain now.
