`cd /sys/${MACHINE}/conf; make FOO' should make configuration FOO.
(For the current build scheme to work, there would have to be a
subdirectory of /sys/${MACHINE}/conf for each configuration file.
I don't like the tiny directories required for this.)

${MACHINE_ARCH} would be wrong here.  pc98 != i386.
