    IMO it negatives impacts the workflow when you -remove- the ability to
    set 32/64-bit on the make command line.

    Building and testing for both architectures now requires the additional
    step of editing .config, which is a clear workflow negative impact at
    least for me.

    I switch between other cross-compiled arches (alpha, usually) on the
    makefile command line

    Yes, I know other 32/64-bit arches require .config editing. That
    doesn't change the basic fact that this is a workflow regression.
