The reason why lp64 is necessary on x86_64 is that otherwise the dump
scans would fail with -m32 because of ABI differences (parameters are
not passed in registers and so the transformation does not happen).  I
have added it to the ppc case because that is what I have tested (and
AFAIK, the 32-bit Linux ABI is also somehow different).  If the
testcases pass on any other target, I'll be grateful if you enable
them there as well once they get in.
