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.
