Hmm, I would have expected it to output the arch string more than once:

(coreutils-7.2-8.fc11 on an arm5tel box)

Linux $hostname $kernelver $builddate armv5tel armv5tel armv5tel GNU/Linux

I think it has to do with uname -m and -i and -p generating the same string.

Yeah, I think that's the best solution for now.
