Well, there's the .elif OBJMACHINE clause which is a significant
improvement for shared pkgsrc trees..

Also, it's a lot easier and more reliable to just set a flag in
mk.conf saying "put this into multi-architecture release format" than
to remember what the release format actually it is and get it right.

Or we could make this the default, but that will probably break things
for other people..

I see gain.  Do you see any harm?
