While I agree that it's broken, a runtime error would be a lot better than a 
compile time one. The way it's now, it only makes our automated compile tests 
fail. And since nobody realized until now that sparc and alpha don't work on 
ppc hosts, I don't think having a compile time failure is warranted.
