You will want to just upgrade the glibc to i386 (it is really i486, but
that is another story).

All the other items that are i586 are OK, and should remain so.  And you
want to keep them.

If the glibc wasn't really i486 (which is a little more stable than i586
and as fast) then we would have modified the code to build the i586.
