Karl has the ultimate word here, but I think besides the need for
some a bit longer standing support, in the sense that we have a builder
not only once, but also in the next years, I see no problems.

We would have to add a few lines to TLConfig.pm, and that is it, and make
sure that out config.guess script and the arch determined by our scripts
does work out.

Best wishes
