The way the compat1 pkgs select their architecture is very broken and
needs to be fixed. I thought about it, and started wondering whether it's
better to repackage them for a MACHINE_ARCH instead of a MACHINE.
This would have a side effect that I would have to refrain from putting
libkvm.so.4.0 in the bundles that have them. hp300 shouldn't need to be
special-cased, as it can cope with the 8k pagesize of the newer shared
I don't think libkvm is probably much use for compatibility, as the
applications that use it typically have to be recompiled between releases
for full useability.
