Right, but since every object rule does include either CFLAGS or  
CXXFLAGS, put the arch flags in those instead of CPPFLAGS.  It works.

For the gcore makefile, CPPFLAGS is probably setting general flags for  
the objects, BUT gdaldrivermanager is a special case because it needs  
that extra macro.  It probably wouldn't hurt to use CPPFLAGS here for  
consistency, but it's not necessary.
