I will check this out in detail and report back here. I didn't look into
it previously because I never really had any need for it but about a
year ago it was announced that jack could support 32 bit apps on the 64
bit build natively.

Well in this case I have to disagree. However not because I don't think
it's not possible but because I definitely found it to be a hassle
before upgrading because the default Fedora 11 didn't install the 32 bit
libs and since upgrading because I haven't yet built the 32 bit version.
As you are the Mandrake packager your knowledge of the build process is
definitely more advanced than mine. However I have been working with
Linux Audio for 10 years so I'm not exactly a novice. I hazard a guess
that this is one thing that would cause people a lot of difficulty and
contribute to the general bad press that pulseaudio recieves online and
in turn Linux Audio on the desktop.
