I'm not sure this code does what you think it does. At least when 
building from the top-level makefile, ZERO_LIBARCH will always be set, 
so the "unknown" case will not be reached.

Also, I'd like to hijacking this thread slightly, sorry about that. :)

When rewriting the Hotspot makefiles, I've been wondering if it would 
not make more sense to consider "zero" to be a different architecture, 
rather than a different "flavor" (like minimal1), as it is treated right 
now. This patch seems to align with the treatment of zero as an 
architecture. Just as an open question, do you think that would make sense?
