Sorry, but I do exactly know why I changed the Arch! UPX compression can
only be applied i386-binaries, UPX contains code which is included into
this binaries. As far as I know this code (=stub = uncompressing loader)
is designed for i386 only. So, upx is a) useless on !386 and b) we would
need some cross compilation to get UPX be compilable on !i386
Brief, forget it.
