Why is this needed? The point of this is to standardise across
various OS, and shouldn't need to match the uname arch.

I've just run "bootstrap" without changing anything, followed by a
"bmake install".

It fails with:

===> Building binary package for digest-20190127

On OpenBSD 6.7

# arch -s

# uname -m

# uname -p

# sysctl hw.machine

I started using pkgsrc on OpenBSD in July, so I don't know whether it
worked previously; but the arch was definitely "am64" on previous
versions too.

Did you add "--abi " to ./bootstrap? Otherwise it doesn't make sense, because ./bootstrap should pick up:

	machine_arch=`arch -s`

oc@OpenBSD:~$ arch -s
