Thanks.  I can confirm that this revision works fine for me.

I have a small comment, though.  On FreeBSD, the arch is reported as
"amd64" as well.  (I don't have FreeBSD installed currently, but if you
go on their website and check any bug report reported from an amd64
user, you'll be able to see the "uname -a" string of such a machine.)

OpenBSD also reports it as amd64 apparently.

Yes, it is different for everyone who hand-compiles pari and hence
installs it to /usr/local.  Thanks for committing this, it's helpful.
