Is i686 the minimum required for HotSpot on x86?

We've just had a bug report for IcedTea which suggests that
HotSpot fails on any x86 platform below i686.
The report is:
and shows a failure caused by an attempt by the JIT to emit
an instruction which isn't present on i586.
Does HotSpot require i686 as a minimum? Or is there something
else at fault here?
