plex86 to be built under ia64


I maintain the i386-specific Plex86 package, but i suspect that i can be
under ia64 environment. Some information from the README.Debian file is
attached below.

If you believe it can be ported, contact me (i'm not subscribed) so i can
ia64 to the architecture list on my next upload.


Porting Plex86 to ia64

Due to Plex86 i386 virtualizator nature, we can divide the sources in three
parts attending on their portability:

- Guest and bios targets. This will be emulated by Plex86 as i386 code, so
must be built specifically for i386. You can find their make commands in
debian/rules file.
- Kernel target (linux module). This acts as a wrapper between guest and
untill upstream modifies it (if ever) to support ia64 host with i386 guest,
must be built specifically for i386. This target also needs to be built on
host machine, you can find its make commands in debian/build_source.
- User target. This is the user interface of Plex86. AFAIK you can safely
it for ia64. Switch to i386 if it doesn't work. Its compiled a few times in
debian/rules, each with different configuration options.
