The bottom line is that for each particular platform we could
end up in only two distinct data models.
Well in theory that can spread to five of them
(LP64,ILP64,LLP64,ILP32,LP32) but AFAICT each platform basically
supports only two distinctive.

Anyhow, APR currently lacks the configure options for at
least specifying data model (using CFLAGS=-m32 && ./configure
is a little bit awkward and nowhere documented)

Resolving that would certainly be one small step helping
packagers to solve some of the multi-arch issues.
