[lsb-discuss] archLSB naming

Hi lsb-discuss,

I have a question about archLSB naming. Why do we call it "amd64" when
`uname -m` and config.guess return "x86_64"?

Most of the architectures are consistant, except for ia32 since it
returns things like "i686". Maybe it should be named "x86"?

Sorry if this was discussed and I missed it.
