seems to be the way MPICH wishes to change to, and they probably 
are going to do it ... I need to think about a nice way of handling 
it transparently on upgrades.

whether people would share /etc/mpich via NFS through multiple arches
is a question. It should probably move to /usr/share/mpich/ as the
upstream wishes to have it. 

arm/ppc/sparc/i386/m68k(!) still have machines.LINUX
alpha is the only one which has been hacked to have machines.LINUX_ALPHA,
it seems.
