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 
further discussion.
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.
