Previously when you rm .config ; make menuconfig, you ended up with
the first arch in the arches menu (alpha in our case) and i find that
impractical. You usually want to
- build for the arch you're running on (which is the default ATM) or
- build for ARCH=

The patch i just sent would relax this and either use the arch from
the .config or the one from ARCH= if there's no .config and should
better match your expectations (AFAIU)?
