I trust that cross compiling is a pain. I am still trying to
understand what is required to have multiple GCC version and making
sure they compile and link with the proper GCC version. The GNU GCC
page is pretty lame when it comes to telling you how to do this.

It's just that I have 4G of RAM and I am itching to make it all
available, on x32 I only see 3G.
