Comment(by duncan):

 Ah yes, so in fact we need the beginnings of cross-compilation support. We
 need to be able to specify or discover the target architecture.

 I see that as of ghc-7, ghc --info now reports its target platform:
  ,("Build platform","x86_64-unknown-linux")
  ,("Host platform","x86_64-unknown-linux")
  ,("Target platform","x86_64-unknown-linux")

 Can you check what it uses on OSX 32 and 64 bit?
