hjlu posted examples to the x32 site as to handle this.  the only difference 
between x86_64 and x32 is the size of the pointers.

please explain why his example won't cover the OpenSSL's needs.  (side note; 
OpenSSL is a terrible example to use because (1) they don't even use autoconf 
or any autotools and (2) they don't generally use sane tuples like the config
