There is nothing architecture dependent here (but all these files are of 
course dependent on whether you have configured OTP with --enable-hipe 
or not).

Anyway, these are the files of the 'hipe' application.  Where exactly do 
you want us to specify them if not in the .app file of the corresponding 
application?  In any case, if you think that something is wrong or does 
not match your needs, submit a git patch and we will consider it.
