What about having different sources?

For the kernels I can imagine a config_x86/config_ppc/config_x86_64
file. But there are packages with huge arch specific  sources like j2re,
jsdk, nvidia and some others.

Can this be done by the bash [ ] or how else?

And how will makepkg decide what sources to download and md5sum are the
correct checksums? Maybe we need source_x64_64 and md5sums_x86_64?
