The archives that are actually provided *by* the Lazarus team solve that
problem in an IMO more sensible way already, though. That is, rather than
having to use strictly 32-bit executables even when running on and
targeting 64-bit, you can just add the 32-bit optional cross binaries seen
below to an otherwise entirely 64-bit installation:
