I think it could be a problem with the configuration being correct only for
one of the two architectures (in particular it looks like it detects uint128_t,
but it is probably not available on i386).

You should be able to compile each variant independently (rerunning the
configuration script) and then link them together to get an universal library.

I don't know if this would be a valid option, but would confirm my
suspects about what the problem is.
