#200 make time gives negative numbers


When I do an install from architectural defautls, sometimes the "present" performance is shown with negative numbers. So, either things aren't getting retimed, or archdef creation is messed up.

One platform where I see this is USIII64.

    This appears to be caused whenever a kernel's archdefs do *not* have a -m32/64 argument, but you are using the opposite of the compilers default setting. I apparently add the -m64 when building the kernel (build is OK, timing just bad), but not when timing. Safest option is to fix the timer to add it, will need to investigate.
