RC1 Configure funny
Message ID:
An interesting funny with -Duse64bit*:

> You may also choose to try maximal 64-bitness.  It means using as much
> 64-bitness as possible on the platform.  This in turn means even more
> binary incompatibilities.  On the other hand, your platform may not
> have any more 64-bitness available than what you already have chosen.

> If this doesn't make any sense to you, just accept the default '8'.
> Try to use maximal 64-bit support, if available? [y]

Notice what Configure says the default is (8), then asks about (y).
