Ok, except that all of those defines have to start with "cpu". The compiler always only defines cpu*: cpui386, cpux86, cpupowerpc, cpupowerpc32, cpupowerpc64, ...

The non-cpu defines are only defined by the Makefiles while compiling the RTL and compiler (although in an ideal world, they would only be defined while compiling the compiler, because they are superfluous while compiling the RTL).
