Thanks Petr.  Had not thought to add this to configure.  Will also need
to be consistent in petscarch and petsc.m4...

Maybe.  linux-gnu-c-[opt|debug] works, but upstreams claim that anything
should work is wrong.  (Tried something else which didn't work.)  I like
the dpkg-architecture idea and will give it a try, with -c-[opt|debug].
Can I point you to a source package to test before I upload?
