Unfortunately my experience is either limited to pure 64-bit or 32-bit
code (mostly on NetBSD, which build.sh script simplifies having
multiple cross-compilers under /usr/tools/), or with NetBSD's NETBSD_32
compat to run 32-bit applications under a 64-bit kernel (I'm sure this
must also be possible on Linux, though).

If you would like to use a 64-bit toolchain to build 32-bit binaries,
perhaps that the -m32 or -m32-bit option to CC/gcc might help (if the
compiler was compiled with such support), but I never tried this.
Others reading this list might have better advice.

Thanks, same to you, Juanjo and to all readers of this list :)
