I'd much rather you tested this in some machine independant way,
so that all that is needed for new architectures is to add them
to the target list.

This is pointless.  The restriction is partly due to a 
representation problem in the compiler.  The only thing
that we ought to be verifying is that we don't ICE and
don't generate incorrect code.
