As far as I can determine, there's no definition in sysctl.h for hw.cputype, which is why I used sysctlbyname().

This is more of a question for Toby, but would it be possible and/or
advisable to convert that to a call to sysctl instead of sysctlbyname?
The current coreutils/src/uname.c is already using sysctl elsewhere,
so it'd be one less function to worry about if we avoided sysctlbyname.

<http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/ man3/sysctlbyname.3.html>
says that sysctlbyname is a small wrapper around sysctl, so it should
be possible to avoid sysctlbyname.
