the consequences in build systems are quite dire and the benefits are  

the naming comes from the uname results which are used by both scons  
and make (dont know for cmake), so it is imho a bit dangerous.

Now changing only  the zip name used for release can be done if  
agreed, that is minor, as long as we are logical with PPC builds.
