I did not understand this part. Who is "it"? gcc?
I tried gcc -v -m64 -c t.c and I do not see -m32 anywhere...
Oh well, never mind.

Pity. Adding that to stock gcc would be nice.

For the time being, I built x86_64 cross compiler and
then I built the 64-bit Linux kernel. It works (apart from
some minor trouble with sound driver).

Thanks guys for your software!
