I think we're going in circles.  Originally, I had $(ARCH) for similar
reasons as you state and then they got replaced by ia64 in the big
Makefile rewrite.  I don't really care much one way or the other, but
let's be consistent.  AFAIK, currently everybody is using the
architecture name, so we probably should stick to that.
