Nope. Even if it did the kernel wouldn't care. Build gcc on a peecee
sometime and you'll see "i386-unknown-linux-gnu" and it will work as
well as gcc ever does. Have some fun with it - maybe
"mips-fuckmeinthegoatass-linux-gnu" (STR) for your amusement or
"mips-notintel-linux-gnu" to make a statement. It won't affect
anything. Leave off the -gnu, though, and configure will kindly add
it back on, reminding you that it is, in fact, GNU/Linux, dammit.
