Yes, it looks like it was changed as part of my MACHINE_ARCH cleanup,
from mk/

  -.  elif ${LOWER_ARCH} == "i386"
  +.  elif ${MACHINE_ARCH} == "i386" || ${MACHINE_ARCH} == "x86_64"
   LOWER_VENDOR?=          pc
   .  endif
   LOWER_VENDOR?=          unknown

I'm not sure why I changed that in hindsight, and it conflicts with
what config.guess outputs, so unless there are objections I'll back it
out so that it's only set for i386.
