This is a description of the *host* computer building the compiler. If I
understood Matt Green correctly, this file is going away, but for now we are
in a dilema: setting this value to 8 makes the compiler build native on
sparc64 (this is the only change needed, the whole build completes just fine,
at least without -j). But: this would break cross-builds from (for example)

I have patched it in all my sparc64 local trees for now and ignore the issue
until Matt comes up with a proper solution ;-}
