hm, i don't think we want it to build for amd64 if we're doing native
builds on x32, right?

In mk/userland-cflags.mk, we have:

ifeq ($(origin GCCM),undefined)
ifeq ($(ARCH),i686)
ifeq ($(ARCH),x86_64)

is ARCH defined as x86_64 for x32?  If so, is there a preferred way that
libreswan should make this distinction?  or should i just manually set
GCCM to -m32 in debian/rules when building for x32?


PS for the libreswan folks who've just joined this thread, here's an
explanation of the x32 port on debian:
