Where are MACHINE_ARCH and LOWER_ARCH defined?
I added an echo to see them in the bsd.prefs.mk and commented out the
section for the OPSYS. They appear to be defined earlier.
Anyways, my problem is my MACHINE_ARCH is i686, but some Makefiles only
check for i386.
I think that it should maybe always be converted, like:
sed -e 's/86/386/'
But do we ever have need to check just for i386 or just i486 (for older
Or will there ever be a i786?
The mk/bsd.prefs.mk doesn't fix it, because it only changes when
MACHINE_ARCH is "unknown".
My pr is pkg/19789.
