oldpmac and newpmac where traditionnally used. Or maybe simply pmac and

maybe simply pegasos would do.

missing chrp_rs6k, i think, at least for all related to kernel-images.

notice that powerpc amiga has traditionnaly been called apus. That said,
there is also m68k amiga which use amiga, i don't know if it makes sense
to keep a common name for both or not.

Notice that these are the values also used for the kernel images, and i
think it makes sense to keep the same stuff around

In truth we have sub-sub arches (pmac is divided in oldpmac and
newpmac, chrp is chrp, chrp-rs6k, or chrp-pegasos).
