That -m32 configure check is there only for the purposes of the testsuite.
Ignore that and all should work. If it does not work the problem is most
probably unrelated to the -m32 issue.
I have removed /lib/libc.so from my system and it all behaves as expected:
checking whether gcc -m32 makes executables we can run... no
configure: WARNING: not running biarch tests, gcc -m32 does not work
make check will:
(2 tests were not run)
This is all perfectly valid.
thanks for the help, here is a good possibility that the issue is mine, I just remembered
that I have applied some patches that I'm not sure I need, will try vanilla, hope it
