Hi Ports,

We're trying to fix a bug in logitechmediaserver which is a port which makes use of a number of non-
standard (hacked?) versions of standard perl modules. My question is how to get the perl 
architecture in the plist. For example, we're using 

@dir %%SLIMDIR%%/CPAN/arch/%%PERL_VER%%/%%ARCH%%-freebsd-thread-

This works out as /usr/local/share/logitechmediaserver/CPAN/arch/5.20/amd64-freebsd-thread-
multi/auto/ExtUtils/CBuilder/ on amd64, which is correct.

However, on i386 it should be


Obviously, the plist doesn't get the -64int suffix.I kinda dread to think what it might be on other 
platforms too.

Are we missing something, or doing something daft here?
