I don't want to -- I HAVE to.  The machine is a Sun Fire V240 and,
when installing Solaris 9, I am not even given the option of installing
a 32-bit kernel.  So I get a 64-bit kernel, and therefore gcc 3.2 does
64-bit compiles by default.  I could try specifying "gcc -m32" to make
it do 32-bit compiles (although I've never been able to get that to work
properly), but then I'd have the inverse problem of getting "make World"
to generate Makefiles that say "CC = gcc -m32 -fpcc-struct-return"
instead of "CC = gcc -fpcc-struct-return".
