I hit this problem when building perf with Yocto (https://www.yoctoproject.org/), which
is a famous building system for embeded system.

When building kernel, we can simply use 'make ARCH=x86' and select 'CONFIG_64BIT'
in menuconfig to get a x86_64 kernel. As a result, there building framework
like Yocto doesn't ever consider 'x86_64' as a valid ARCH option. See:
https://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/poky/tree/meta/classes/kernel-arch.bbclass
Therefore, when building with such framework, it uses a x86_64 compiler and ARCH=x86.
