My experience is that nobody really cares.  Most programs build fine
despite the wrong guessed build system type, and for the ones that don't
you have to specify the --build option or run the whole build process
under linux32.

In Debian there is dpkg-architecture which prints correct values that
you can feed as --build and --host arguments, but I am not aware of a
general solution.
