Yes slackpkg should handle it - unless these packages have their armv4
compatability returned (it was removed from the code), then I will
continue to give them the arch value they have now.

I guess he could just match on "arm*".  I'm not sure if there are any
downsides to this, but given that we only have one ARM port now (rather
than the oldabi), I don't see any problems here.
