Just in case that wasn't a typo in transcription - you need
CFLAGS="-march=i386" (with an 'm'). You should look at the config.log
etc to find out exactly why the compiler couldn't build executables.
BTW again just in case - if your host is an x86 system, you don't need a
cross-compiler as your host compiler can build for all x86 variants -
it's enough to get the CFLAGS right; e.g.
CFLAGS="-march=i386" ROOT=/tmp/cross emerge <pkg>
