Not that I'm the one to provide the answer, but I guess that it would be
useful to check, whether / since when the '-32' parameter is supported on
the 32-bit version of Sparc/Linux. If it hasn't already been supported (or
at least ignored ;-) ) for ages there, the minimum version supporting it
needs to be mentioned somewhere in the readme, etc., and also added to the
Wiki page User_changes_trunk, because the compiler would probably not work
for the older versions any longer after that change.
