Right, thanks for spotting this.

Yes, this is the default.

That would be too burdensome for nearly all users. And would slow down
the autobuilders, too.

I think so, yes (which is why nobody noticed so far). It is almost
unused in upstream makefiles, and in Debian packages we use the dpkg

5. Make gnustep-make arch:any again.
6. Move config-noarch.make to gnustep-common.
I'm going to do 6) as it's the most straightforward approach and doesn't
cause the archive bloat that would result in implementing 5).
