In general, if you're not using autoconf and automake, your Makefile
probably won't usefully cross-compile anyway. (Unless you've very
intentionally made this possible)
Are you doing this in the context of a Debian package? If yes, look for $(DEB_BUILD_GNU_TYPE) to be 'i386-linux' or 'i386-gnu'
Failing that, your uname trick is just as good as any others.
