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.
