	I'd prefer this just since it makes like a bit easier
on up2date. the sources config file supports $ARCH that can
figure out the right path.

	It also works better for x86_64/ia64/ppc64 machines
(okay, granted, not that many folks care about that atm...)
Since there is currently no way to tell apart the "x86 packages
blessed for x86_64" and just any old x86 package in the same
pile. So potential conflicts there (though, it's -><- close
to "just working" having up2date on x86_64 pointing at both
a x86_64 and a x86 repo).
