According to the readme:

We have the PSL sources in the trunk cleaned up for the most 
wanted versions, i.e. Windows, Linux(Intel), and Mac/OS (Intel)
both 32 and 64 bit.

The maintenance for the PSL trees is done by the script     in this directory.

This script chooses the traditional PSL-name from the generic name used
at configure time, e.g.

x86_64-unknown-ubuntu10.04   ==>  AMD64

which keeps the name stable across changes of the OS version or
change of the Linux distribution.

Simply starting the script by ./ produces a PSL tree *here*,
most important are ./bin and ./dist .

There are variants (as usual :-) ) which allow one to produce a different
version on a compatible system, e.g. an extended AMD64 system (using
all registers, inline cons, etc) which can be made by

./ AMD64_ext

on an 64 bit Linux system. As of today, you can produce versions called
linux (32 bit Intel Linux) or brock (don't ask) by setting the parameter.

Similar thing can be done on MAC/OS. The canonical name is mactintel64,
but macintel can be generated on a 64 bit system as well.
