--- Comment #6 from Jim Mason <jmason at ibinx.com> ---
I am going to withdraw this patch for now.

CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR is not ideal, as i386 is ambiguous; however, I am not sure there is a best-practices alternative for architecture determination in CMake.

As for the patch, my doubt is whether CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P will yield the expected result if the target architecture is different to the build architecture.

For now, users who are affected by the i386 ambiguity can override the value of CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR to work within the existing semantics.  That is not ideal, but now I can think of no better way that does not introduce some other problem.
