FBBG :) (just kidding of course - if you and Ryan had done that heaven
knows where we'd be right now!).
FWIW I agree with adding "arch" to chapter 5 - building a package
with different optimisations on the same machine feels wrong.  The
developers obviously think there is a problem with -O3 on the affected
architecture/compiler combination so we should do what we can to honour
their judgement IMO.
