RE: Renaming this list into debian-amd64
gcc will recognize amd64 as an alias to x86_64, but as far as the kernel and compilers are concerned, x86_64 will still be the architecture name. Again, if gcc recognizes x86 as a platform name, it should be called debian-amd64. If it instead recognizes i686 as the platform name, it should be debian-x86_64.

Amd said amd64 is the official architecture name, this is most
probably also the name gcc, Linux and dpkg will recognise.
