Yes, this is already the intention.  MACHINE_ARCH is intended to be
normalised across pkgsrc, and doesn't have to match what the host OS
happens to report.  SunOS also reports amd64 for "isainfo -k", but
still uses x86_64 correctly for MACHINE_ARCH.

It should be pretty easy to patch bmake or pkg_install to enforce what
bootstrap sets MACHINE_ARCH to in this case.  If nobody is able to
I'll try to take a look, though my OpenBSD host is an octeon.
