This has the slight problem of needing to be diverged for Ubuntu and
other derivatives where the baseline triplet is different from Debian.
So I guess this would need either the corresponding fixup in
debian/rules, or maybe better to use a regex for the GNU triplet,
although then the bi-direction mapping becomes a bit more cumbersome,
but I don't think we need it right now anyway?
