I strongly encourage this solution.
Anything that relies on the target triplet is going to break as soon as you
move outside a pure Debian system. i.e. any patches relying on a particular
target triplet are inherently Debian specific, and IMO should never be pushed
The only way to reliably determine the current ABI is to ask the compiler,
probably checking for a preprocessor macro that doesn't exist yet :-/
