I still do not understand the original issue. The failure to build


triggerd this, and while


was accepted by the upstream gcc configure script, it still does not make
much sense, as it should be


instead. There are probably hundreds of targets you could configure that do
not match any real NetBSD supported target, and the list varies over time
(see recentish arm OABI removal).

So if you have to know what you ard doing (or look it up) anyway, why
is any change needed? I have never before seen anyone actually wonder
about the names in this magic tuples, or suggest cosmetic changes.
