I'm running the 64-bit version of Fedora core 3.  Configure sets wine to
be compiled 32 bit on x86_64 systems, as Windows programs are all 32-bit
binaries and need a 32-bit ABI.  It sets CC to gcc -m32 in the Makefile.
I guess when Windows64 bit has been out for a while, and stabilises, we
could look at how that handles 32->64 bit translation and work on a
similar method, but as no current apps depend on it it's a bit academic
at this stage.

configure is run as ./configure --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/lib because
xmkmf, which configure uses to detect the x library location always
seems to return the lib64 directory, no matter how you try to force it

I think Vincent answered this one...
