  uname -p is amd64

  bootstrap regularizes that to x86_64 (which seems ok, as it means

  pkg_install fails to do the corresponding regularization

so fixes might be one of

  when building pkg_install, have the MACHINE_ARCH substituted in and
  use that as the value to expect

  in pkg_install, when MACHINE_ARCH is amd64, behave as if it were
