$system is say `powerpc' where $subarch will be things like pmac, apus,
prep, chrp etc.  these are all different varients, or subarchs of the
PowerPC archetecture as a whole.  

it seems to me $system should never be null, in your case it should
always be m68k or whatever.

see above, your change will certainly break powerpc at a minimum.
