    That particular one-line `ALTARCH := i386' of course can be matched
    simpler, because there's only *one* (as written above) whitespace and no
    make's assignment variations, like (?=,=). I wonder, if there can be more
    options, than i386 and more occurrences of `ALTARCH' actually :) Also,
    make can have lead whitespace on line start, as well as near assignment
    sign, if that matters.

    So, to match *one* line with *one* `ALTARCH' followed by `i386'

    sed -n '/ALTARCH/{/i386/{p ; q}}'

    is fine by me. If there are dis-assignments, so to speak, or comments
    with i386 this will not work obviously. But it's fast and must work
    with variety of make syntax. Check is "for non empty output".

    Also, please take a look on man isspace(). It matches much more
    characters, than necessary for ordinary syntax whitespace. Using
    [:blank:] (i.e. tab and space, with no options) is OK. Last thing: i'm not
    sure, what that `+' is. I stick to BRE in sed, as it should be, so just
    don't know what it does.

    Hope that helps.
