There's the Mach kernel, the Hurd set of translators, the eglibc
and the i386 platform. The Debian architectures are not represen-
ted. Your best bet is probably:
DEB_BUILD_ARCH?= $(shell dpkg-architecture -qDEB_BUILD_ARCH)
Then pass appropriate things via debian/rules.
This won't work upstream though.
Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font. -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
