You are right. We should all stop using amd64 machines now and
go back to using 486 machines. While we're at it, throw away all
TFT displays, SSDs and anything else that was invented in the
past 20 years.

Sorry Thorsten, but your drive to nostalgia is sometimes counter-
productive. When there is a bug, then the proper solution is to
fix it, not to circumvent it by using archaic hardware or software.

You are welcome to set up more Aranym buildds on your 32-bit
host systems, but just looking at the build times for gnugo,
for example, tells me that I am right and you are wrong:
