There's no good way to make it arch-specific, according to Warner. If we 
grow such support, it could be made that way, but I don't think the 300 
K is enough to worry about. Also (hopefully), the list of architectures 
requiring it will continue to grow in the future.

Aside from some MIPS kernels requiring 64-bit toolchains not yet 
connected to the build, all make universe failures are now 100% genuine 
problems. Have fun, all :)
