BTW, the MIPS has been using this since:
Wed Jun 7 18:27:51 2000 Andrew Cagney <email@example.com>
* configure.in (DEFAULT_BFD_ARCH, DEFAULT_BFD_VEC): Use config.bfd
to determine the default architecture / target.
* acconfig (DEFAULT_BFD_ARCH, DEFAULT_BFD_VEC): Add.
* configure, config.in: Regenerate.
* arch-utils.c (set_endian): Better separate multi-arch and non-
(set_endian_from_file): Call internal_error when multi-arch.
(initialize_current_architecture): Rewrite logic selecting a byte
order. Use DEFAULT_BFD_ARCH DEFAULT_BFD_VEC.
* config/mips/tm-mips.h, config/mips/tm-bigmips64.h,
config/mips/tm-bigmips.h: Delete definition of
