Since ARCH is set through archdetect, and since archdetect.c (in hw-detect) has this as final code: printf("%s/%s\n", CPU_TEXT, subarch); … it seems to me we really should be checking for something like what you're suggesting. Would you be interested in helping test an image with this fix included? I can build an amd64 netinst and upload that for your to try. KiBi.
