Yes, both test out ok.

Not really, using ilp32 and explicit -m32 means -m32 is passed twice.  I will
remove the explicit -m32.

You cannot use -m32 on a 64-bit little endian system, so the && ilp32 test
guarantees it is only run on a system that supports 32-bit (a pure 32-bit
system, or a big endian 64-bit system that still has the 32-bit libraries

I also imagine somebody could build a 64-bit big endian compiler that was
configured with --disable-multilib, and you would not be able to do -m32.

As I said, I dropped the explicit -m32 in dg-options.
