I need to determine the ABI string pkg uses on a given system, and need to do so when there are no pkgs installed. I've read through libpkg/pkg_elf.c and I can see how it's reading ELF headers from well-known files. That's all easy enough to replicate, but I'm a bit stuck on how it's determining the arch string for x86. How/When does pkg decide to use FreeBSD:13:amd64 instead of FreeBSD:13:x86:64? Can I safely assume one or the other?
