the Gentoo embedded handbook did mention that the portage/tuple values do not
match the kernel, but ive added some more stuff to make it explicit.
however, i dont plan on adding a full list mapping the three distinct sets.
the kernel has been changing arch values over time (ppc and ppc64 were
unified into ppc, i386 and x86_64 were unified into x86, ...), so instead i
described how you can discover the value yourself.
