Please upload the updated packages for algol68g (both 32 and 64 bit):

you can not assume that
is providing anything useful.
uname -m works on every system I've tried (unlike uname -p, uname -i).
Very useful (e.g. in PATH=$HOME/bin/`uname`.`uname -m`:$PATH).
I think it is really not a good idea to have the same name for archives
of different packages. No other systems I know does this.
I had raised this issue well in time
(http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-apps/2013-04/msg00319.html) with some
initially positive responses (including yours) but unfortunately no
Moreover we are not using the architecture on the binary file.
My upload request was a feable attempt to foster this discussion again...
By the way, I have managed meanwhile to package algol68g completely with
cygport (see my other thread which I will respond later) and will
provide another upload.
