In fact, this behavior comes from a desire to do the right thing
when building and bootstrapping gcc.  GCC's bootstrap process expects
that if the build/host system is sparc64-* that the system compiler,
as well as the GCC binary produced by the gcc build itself, will both
produce 64-bit executables by default.  If this is not the case, the
GCC bootstrap will flat out fail.

In fact, you can ask Ben, that this is where the behavior change came
from.  After I discussed this very specific issues with Ben over the
course of several weeks.
