At risk of going off topic:

i should clarify: what i meant by "here" was a different part of our
build system for our internal projects, not the tool chain build
scripts. I have *no* idea why *those glibc* scripts are checking getconf

"here" (for our projects) we can assume getconf always exists, it gets
installed as part of glibc, so we use it instead of "arch -m" :)
