Status of '-m32' flag
Message ID:
Hi all,

After reading the INSTALL file on Perl's root directory, I saw this
information there:

"Natively 64-bit systems need neither -Duse64bitint nor -Duse64bitall.
On these systems, it might be the default compilation mode, and there
is currently no guarantee that passing no use64bitall option to the
Configure process will build a 32bit perl. Implementing -Duse32bit*
options is planned for perl 5.12."

I know it's pretty soon to ask, but I'd like to know how's going the
implementation of '-m32' flag.
