Yes, we know, it's different from what the toolchain and kernel use.  As
it happens, so is i386.  Of course, in the kernel menu that users see

Intel x86-64

Guess they must be pimping everyone.  Of course, I hope that on the
ports page, regardless of the port name we use, it points out that the
architecture was developed by AMD.  Hell, if we *didn't* say that people
would have good reason to wonder about us and our motives.
