Please repeat after me -- the current notion of the "arch/arm32" directory
should go completely away, in favor of properly named port directories.
(See my previous message).
The current arrangement, in addition to encouraging bad coding practice,
is just a complete nightmare from a release engineering perspective (ever
wonder why the arm32 port never had any nice install tools? This is one
of the reasons...)
