RE: building with -m64

I don't know which "latest" libtool to look at but there are enough problems
with the current one that I think we should investigate an upgrade.

re: passing -m64 - I recall I used a wrapper shell script for gcc when
building on Ultrasparc. Getting libtool to do anything sane by itself is just
... annoying...
