I don't object to this patch, but I wonder if there isn't a better
place to do the check, where we could issue a more informative

Does this warning ever come about when the core file is *not* of a
different architecture?  I'd assume not, since the caller indicated
that the section in question is required.

(Sorry if this patch has been discussed before --- I couldn't find the
thread in the archives.)
