While cleaning up the Darwin and Solaris profiles, I noticed that there
is some redundancy in masks (necessary) due to the structure based on
Most e.g. masks in the ppc dirs are specific for the CPU, and not really
bound to the OS release. So I propose the following structure:
<os>/<release>/<arch> (inherits from .. and ../../<arch>)
This way a single mask can e.g. apply to all PPC versions of Mac OS X.
Similar for Solaris' sparc, sparc64, x86 and x64.
Does this make sense, or am I missing something obvious? Better ideas?
(note that I (hopefully) kept full backwards compatability with this scheme)
