hmmm, this is completely different from the current system. The current
system "knows" what architecture you are configuring. Users shouldn't
have to specify a -D to get this behavior..


P.S. Can you package cml to extract into something other than the
current directory? ie. extract the tarball into cml-x.y.z/*
