I'm not sure exactly where ARCH comes from - but one difference you
could use is that the GNU triplet for x32 is x86_64-linux-gnux32, as
opposed to x86_64-linux-gnu for amd64.

The flag would be -mx32 (-m32 would try to cross-build for i386 and
run into the same issue).  Either that, or just drop the
-m64/-m32/-mx32 flag altogether for Debian builds as it's not really
necessary anyway.
