Problems with ARCH in current Makefiles

Hello everyone,

During a test build of trunk I found a problem with the current 
implementation of ARCH.  The ARCH variable seems to get picked up by the 
kernel makefiles and results in the linux build failing:

make mrproper
make[3]: Entering directory `/lfs-livecd/packages/linux/linux-'
/lfs-livecd/packages/linux/linux- No such 
file or directory
make[3]: *** No rule to make target 
`/lfs-livecd/packages/linux/linux-'.  Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/lfs-livecd/packages/linux/linux-'
make[2]: *** [compile-stage2] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/lfs-livecd/packages/linux/linux-'
make[1]: *** [stage2] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/lfs-livecd/packages/linux'
make: *** [ch-linux] Error 2
make: *** [extend-lfs] Error 2

Our ARCH := x86 being substituted for i386.  I guess it would be better 
just to name it something different.  Any suggestions or other solutions?
