Unfortunately, ENOWORK

first off, there's a core dump in parameters.c/parameter_exists
due to walking the parameter table looking for a NULL value 
as a terminator, but there's no NULL terminator. That's an easy 
fix to elements.h - and may be a generic bug that just wasn't
tickled before.

The harder problem is that it doesn't apply everywhere
in the tree, I can't do this without getting bitter
syntax errors:

<cond test="arch">
    <!ENTITY lsb_dynlinker "ld-lsb-ia64.so.1">
    <!ENTITY lsb_dynlinker "ld-lsb-ia64.so.1">

Finally, it doesn't actually seem to work.  I'm going
to play with it some more, but it didn't seem to have
any effect when I included an ia64 element of the
type above, in a place where it isn't a syntax error...
