[patch] mixed i386/amd64 ports semi-broken

Hi there,

I hit this problem attempting to install print/acroread7 on amd64.
It depends on emulators/linux_base-8, which rewrites ${ARCH} from
"amd64" to "i386".  Unfortunately, when linux_base-8 is processed
in a submake, e.g., when I run "make fetch-recursive" in
print/acroread7, no rewrite of ${ARCH} actually happens because
bsd.port.mk mistakenly thinks that ${ARCH} can never change, so
it's getting passed ARCH already set to "amd64", and as a highest
priority command-line type make(1) variable.  This results in
${MD5_FILE} improperly set to distinfo.amd64 which doesn't exist.
Here's a fix:
