I did that deliberately so that I could hack the merged version
without worrying about whether I would break the compile with ARCH=ppc
or ARCH=ppc64.  If it turns out that the merged version of some file
is sufficiently similar to the ppc version, we can then delete the ppc
version and just use the merged version.
