I think this is our gcc wrapper coming up to bite someone else. Please do
sparc32 /bin/bash then try building.
I think we should throw away the gcc wrapper. Currently gcc-3.3 defaults
to the 32 bit arch then switches to 64 bit arch only when -m64 is provided.
This is probably what most people expect so I think the gcc wrapper should
be thrown away.
