Right. I meant that one.

Having an out-of-the-box solution would certainly help.

Automatically adding CFLAGS=-m32 or CFLAGS=-m64 by some
configure option is usually all that is needed.
Of course things get complicated with different compilers
Eg, for aCC on HP-UX this has to be CFLAGS=+DD32 or

As part of my daily job I'm using something similar to
APR's config.layout and put the arch selection options
in that file. Changes to configure are trivial and just
merge those options
eg. ./configure --enable-layout=apr --enable-arch=suncc-32
