I was using ax_gcc_archflag.m4 and ax_ext.m4 on a 64-bit FreeBSD system using GNUC (and clang). The $cpu_host variable in that environment uses a string of 'amd64'. Any cpu_host that starts with amd64 should be compatible for purposes of cpuinfo usage as it is equivalent with x86_64. No such check is done in these two macros.

64bit FreeBSD returned on my system:
