Setting CPU won't have any effect since config.nmake clobbers it based on the
value of WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM:

#
# Machine type for the compiler and linker
# TARGET_MACHINE (Used for link /MACHINE) should be one of "X86" or "X64"
# (sorry ARM, Alpha, MIPS, and Itanium fans).
# CPU (Used by win32.mak) should be one of "i386" or "AMD64".
!if "$(WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM)" == "win32"
TARGET_MACHINE=X86
CPU=i386
!else if "$(WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM)" == "win64"
TARGET_MACHINE=X64
CPU=AMD64
!else
!error Your mysterious moon-man architecture "$(WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM)"
frightens and confuses us.
!endif

The whole point of having WIRESHARK_TARGET_PLATFORM is so that variables like
CPU, TARGET_MACHINE, and other options will be set to their correct values
automatically.
