we've been using hppa2.0 for years. gnuconfig certainly recognizes it:
$ grep hppa /usr/share/gnuconfig/config.sub
| h8300 | h8500 | hppa | hppa1.[01] | hppa2.0 | hppa2.0[nw] | hppa64 \
| hppa-* | hppa1.[01]-* | hppa2.0-* | hppa2.0[nw]-* | hppa64-* \
and i've seen diff projects key off of the hppa2.0* to enable newer features by
default.

sure, but your new patch added the sed :)

yeah, OK ... this behavior changed from what i was remembering. ?= used to
work until the top level Makefile was improved.
