this comes up from time to time in porting issues when configuration and
wanna-be scripts parse the output of uname -m.
On GNU/Linux, this gives "i686" here.
On GNU/Hurd, it gives "i386-AT386".
Usually easy enough to fix, but does anybody remember what the AT386 stands
for, what in general comes after the dash, and if this is a conscious
decision (eg deliberately different for a good reason), or just the case
that it was never given any attention. Because if that's just a weirdo,
fixing that might just give that change-once-and-stop-worrying experience in
