I think the real issue is lack of standard values for -p and -m.  As I
understand it, -p is for processor, and should be x86_64, whereas -m is
for machine and should be amd64, at least in the BSD world.  At least
that's what NetBSD does.

So I would be inclined to have the code in pkgsrc and tools that obtains
"uname -p" output change amd64 to x86_64, and have that be a general
subsitution framework.  The other alternative is to put in amd64 as an
alias in he code that uses the uname -p values.
