For a regex pattern you should include both.
I do not bore which one is built and distributed on my packages.

E.G. on octave

/usr/lib/octave/site/oct/i686-pc-cygwin
/usr/lib/octave/site/oct/x86_64-unknown-cygwin

This is certainly not right. I can understand that we will have some
discrepancies across packages, but having a different vendor in the same
package
is unacceptable. It suggests that x86_64-unknown-cygwin and i686-pc-cygwin
differ in more ways that one, which they dont. you let it slide, then
people
start asking:


I can live with the historical i*-pc-cygwin mishap.

- where is x86_64-pc-cygwin?

This I cannot live with and the package maintainers need to target
x86_64-unknown-cygwin instead.  GCC has a target build of
x86_64-pc-cygwin, it needs corrected!

It seems all cygwin package maintainers have no problem.
So are you causing yourself a not-existing problem ?
