    ok, took long enough, but that answers most things. your usage of "x32-"
    prefixed binaries in the documentation seems to imply a lot more than the fact
    you just picked those locally to avoid system collisions. this isnt a wiki
    page, otherwise i'd clean things up for you.

    in looking at the gcc files, it doesnt seem like there's any defines setup to
    declare x32 directly. instead, you'd have to do something like:
    #ifdef __x86_64__
    # if __SIZEOF_LONG__ == 8
    /* x86_64 */
    # else
    /* x32 */
    # endif
    #endif

    any plans on adding an __x32__ (or whatever) cpp symbol to keep people from
    coming up with their own special/broken crap ? or are there some already that
    i'm not seeing ?
