is there a special reason that the recipies deal with 32bit and 64bit
versions of our builds? could not gar just hardcode: if run on
x86/current9x, build 32 bit, if run on sparc or unstable9x, build

reason why i dare asking:
* tools like git and mercurial are sensitive to the available memory
address space
* build recipes dealing with 32 and 64 bit tend to be tricky. e.g.
apr, apr-util,
  which then contain special hints why something worked or did not work
