You need to identifiy those files that _seem_ to be platform specific. 

From my experience there are basically none. When my ibook broke, I installed 
the same packages on a i386 laptop, copied the configuration files and /home 
and kept working :-)

"bacially none" because the bootloader config is different and I used a 
different partitioning, so fstab was different too...

Stuff in /usr/local is likely to be platform specific, too. But not in /etc.
