 Log Message:
 Don't let the pkgsrc TARGET_ARCH bleed into gmake's environment.
 This is a provisional kludge to work around PR pkg/47838.  Sorry for
 taking far too long to find a workaround that doesn't break various
 other stuff too -- this duration of time was ridiculous, and it was
 entirely my fault.
 We can get rid of this kludge when we start using `env -i' in the
 build phase or when we replace TARGET_ARCH by TARGET_MACHINE_PLATFORM
 (and replace the make-internal variable MACHINE_ARCH by
 MACHINE_PLATFORM -- that is part of what makes the logic in
 pkgformat/pkg/ and so fragile).  However,
 although I intend to do both of these things, they were deemed too
 likely to cause too much fallout just before the freeze, so they'll
 wait until after the freeze.
