Build on Fedora core 3 on AMD64

I am having trouble getting wine (latest CVS) to build on my AMD64 box
runngin Fedora core3, and I was hoping some autoconf wizard might be
able to help.  To begin at the beginning, the issue that occurs during
build is:

gcc -m32 -c -I. -I. -I../../include -I../../include -I/usr/X11R6/include
-D__WINESRC__   -D_REENTRANT -fPIC -Wall -pipe -mpreferred-stack-

So it seems that ld is finding the 64-bit version and failing to link
it.  It seems that the reason for this is that configure uses
xmkmf/imake to locate the X11 library directory and that this is always
returning the .../lib64 version.  I have split out the Imakefile that
configure generates, and tried various methods to prevent it seeing the
system as 64 bit and handing out the lib64 directory instead of the lib
one, but to no avail.

setarch i386 imake -v -DUseInstalled -I/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/config
(to emulate an xmkmf, but with verbosity, which xmkmf doesn't do)

I can see that gcc is being passed -D__amd64__ but I can't trace where
this is coming from... 

Am I hunting on the right lines, or is there somthing much simpler I
have missed?  Also, what do we need to change in the autoconf stuff to
allow wine to build correctly on x86_64 multi-arch systems? (assuming
that it is not just my system being broken somehow)

Thanks for any help,
