Argh.. of course you are right.

This is a remnant from the time when this was still  called  PPCBoot,
i. e. when PPC was the only supported target architecture.

I think the test should be changed into

	ifeq ($(HOSTARCH),$(ARCH))

Then we can also drop the other special case, i. e. get rid of this:

	ifeq ($(HOSTARCH),i386)

Does this work for you?
