As an aside you realize a fix to the specific example is solvable
using $(ARCH) and $(OPSYS) to redirect to a operating specific file
(Which IIRC is allowed to then rewrite the $(ARCH) and $(OPSYS) values

Obviously for something less fixed this isn't an option so I second
the desire for the different evaluation modes (In fact -l really
shouldn't change anything at an individual element level, it would be
nicer to have an additional command line swicth wich said
--evaluate=[true|false] (which at least for now should default to the
previous behaviours for backwards compatibility but should be
switchable for those that need it)
