That's right... I didn't consider this situation before...
Building amd64 CURRENT on i386 RELENG_[67] won't work.  I'll see what
I can do, I think we probably need revert back to let Binutils ar to
handle the cross build.

My Makefile knowledge is very poor, is there a way to let the build
system use Binutils 'ar' in the building process but later install
it as 'gar'?
