yea.. however the config/Makefile still stays as it was

but whatever change you'll make for Makefile.perf I need
to transform.. but this one does not seem too massive ;-)

isn't the check for x86 superfluous here? the x86_64 check is stronger

otherwise it looks ok to me.. Wang Nan, could you please check
if it fixes the issue for you?
