How would that be detected? As I understand the original bug report, the
user gave gcc a -m32 flag. How would that be reflected in the environment?
Let's assume you can coax libxml into compiling in 32-bit mode with Python
support enabled even though you have a 64-bit mode Python installed. Won't
that just push the problem further down the tool chain? Instead of a
compilation failure wouldn't you get a runtime error of some sort, or would
the two coexist?
