This doesn't work. For example CONFIG_ALPHA_EV67 depends on
CONFIG_ALPHA_EV6, so we'll never use the -mcpu=ev67 flag.

I'm reverting this part. I see nothing wrong with an if/else
tree for this. It's straightforward. I think anything you come
up with to replace it will be harder to understand at a glance,
and therefore more fragile.

I've just removed these targets.

I'm testing the rest of the patch now. Will apply if successful.
