Compiling shred on 386

I was trying to compile shred (from fileutils-4.1) on an machine with an 
older compiler, which failed because the "rdtsc" intel instruction is only 
available on Pentium class processors (quote from Nasm documentation):          
        A.141 RDTSC: Read Time-Stamp Counter                       

        RDTSC                         ; 0F 31                [PENT]

        RDTSC reads the processor's time-stamp counter into EDX:EAX.

This in struction is used on line 836. As far as I know, there is no
similar instruction on the 386 or 486; the only solution I can think of is      
to use the generic (C) version on these machines.                               

So the patch should be: sed s/__i386__/__i686__/g

Thanks for all the good work,
