I wouldn't suggest using the --enable-32/64-bit switches for mesa.
They were just implemented as a quick method to get the 32/64 bit
flags right for someone that's not that familiar with autoconf.
However, the right way to do this (especially for a controlled build
environment like an ebuild or an rpm) is to use --host and --build
like any other autotooled package. The arch-specific settings in
configure follow the $host* settings. The 32/64-bit switches just
kludge things to try to work that way, too, but it's not as foolproof
as just telling configure what arch you're building for.
