Here's my first attempt at $ARCH=native:

if [ "$ARCH" = "x86_64" -o \( "$ARCH" = "native" -a "$(uname -m)" =
"x86_64" \) ]; then
if [ "$ARCH" = "native" ]; then
  SLKCFLAGS="$SLKCFLAGS -march=native"
elif [ "$ARCH" = "i486" ]; then
  SLKCFLAGS="$SLKCFLAGS -march=i486 -mtune=i686"
elif [ "$ARCH" = "i686" ]; then
  SLKCFLAGS="$SLKCFLAGS -march=i686 -mtune=i686"
