You're conflating two different ideas. The arch is orthogonal to

This part is correct. These ports will never be tested on the build
cluster no matter what the state of the toggle.
It's a bit academic at the moment, as we haven't had enough horsepower
to do a TRYBROKEN on any arch for a really long time.
However, with the advent of the NYI machines, we are getting there.
For a dummy load for debugging pointyhat-west, I have recently done a
-trybroken run on amd64-8. Here is my fist-cut summary of the results:
I don't have the cycles to investigate any further, so any and all
help would be welcomed.
My own theory is that for the tier-2s, since we don't have enough
horsepower to do timely regular builds, that there's not much point
representing that we can do -trybrokens. Thus, when I poke at sparc64
and powerpc every once in a while, I'm setting BROKEN or ONLY_FOR in
the Makefiles just as a service to the users. (OK, and to make it so
I have less results to look at after the next run :-) )
