what should the string for MARCH be in the deken file name for Intel
compatible processors, the deken documentation is unclear here:

- 64 bit: amd64 or x86_64?
AFAIK both mean the same thing, but are used in different contexts, most
Linux distros use amd64, while on Windows x64 (Visual Studio) and x86_64
(MinGW) are used, no idea about Mac.

- 32 bit: i386 or x86?
Linux distros use i386, Windows x86, no idea about Mac.

The examples use both 64 bit versions, inconsistent in the usage:

dumb my suggestions are."
