Huh.  In which case canadian cross is all mucked up, and the bits
here don't really break things any more than they're already broke.

I would think it wouldn't be too difficult to make sure that H_W_I
matched in width for build and host.  To the extent that a 64-bit 
build machine doesn't *have* to use a 64-bit H_W_I type, and a 
32-bit build machine *must* have a 64-bit H_W_I type if we're
using a 64-bit host machine.

Further, the printing macros that we have should be distinguished
for "current" machine or the host machine.

I'm not going to clean any of this up myself.
