After running the 'configure' command, I launched a
grep for "-m64" or "BUILD64" on every file of the
package, and nothing was returned. It seems that this
option has no effect during this stage. Or did I miss

This time, after the 'configure', the Makefile has a
line with 'CC=gcc -m64', so what is the use to
overwrite this with the option of the 'make' command.
In the log of the make, there is no change.
