The principle is nice but the code style looks different from the rest and a 
bit complicated for what it is. Why using a subscript for instance? Why not 
nesting if?

Finally, you could instead of using readelf use a carefully crafted conftest 
that would give you whether userspace is 32bit of 64bit. The structure would 
then look like this:

if ARCH is defined, then use it
else use uname

if cpu is x86_64 and conftest gives 32bit, cpu=i386.

What do you think?
