There problem here is ADLC, which is part of the server compiler.  Let
me try to get it built for a 32-bit host...

Cross-compiling IcedTea for MIPS or PPC should work OK, as there is no
server or client compiler port so Zero is used and that builds fine.

You could also build x86_64 Zero (Gary, does that work?) on your 32-bit
system and use that one.  But keep in mind that it's C++ interpreter
