arch.h is build by genarch, which is compiled with CCAUX, at least in 
unix-aux.mak and msvctail.mak. This was the case in ghostscript-6.0 as 

Now, obviously that can give you the wrong values for the arch.h 
constants since it's testing the host rather than the target, but
that's a separate issue.

Yes, separting the two makes sense for a cross compile. Perhaps the best 
way to automate such a build would be to invoke a recursive make with 
ZOBJDIR and GLOBJDIR, and AUXGEN overridden and then copy the output 

Thanks for your thoughts,
