thanks for the clarification.

the thing with "march" is, that this string is just a gcc flag (also
available to clang).
afaict, the flag meaningless on other compilers, like MSVC, and the same
architecture is named differently on other compilers as well ("x64" on

so the point was to get a march identifier that is independent of my or
your current toolset.

and to stand on the shoulder of giants (Debian, that is).
