I agree that this is worthwhile goal, but I'm not sure how easy it will
be to implement at this stage. The complication is that GNUmake descends
through the tree just once, and it's not until it gets to the bottom
Makefiles that it decides which target architectures to compile the code
for. I don't want to have to edit every Makefile and put a conditional
test in them, but I might be able to do something in the modules' own
configure/CONFIG files.

I can't promise anything for the -rc1, but I will try to implement
something for the final release if I can do so cleanly.
