Mathlink platform names of opteron and ia32 "Linux" conflicting - Any Wolfram person here?

Hi,

Maybe this is not a common problem, but when one wants to run Mathlink
program 'foo' in a multi-platform environment including ia32, ia64,
HP-Alpha and Opteron, it is convenient to compile and put the specific
binary executables under foo/PLATFORM_NAME/ and Mathematica
automatically loads the binary corresponding to the host platform.
Unfortunately ia32 (pentium*) and opteron share the same "Linux" but
the executables are NOT compatible. I guess it is possible to compile
with some special switch to get binary compatible executables but at
the cost of efficiency and effort. Can Wolfram please come up with a
new distinct name for opteron like Linux-opteron?

Thanks,
Fei
