how so ?  for the most part, existing x86_64 assembly should "just work" for 
x32.  pointers tend to be where things get into trouble, but otherwise x32 is 
simply x86_64 with different sizeof(long) & sizeof(void*).  64bit types work 
just fine and with the same performance as in x86_64 -- no ugliness like 32bit 

`make check` passes for me w/gmp in x32.  so at least something is working.
