Based on the previous two patches post, we do some modifications and now
post out the latest patches to add bi-arch test in frysk. The main
modifications are focused on how to filter the "-m64" option in PPC64.

Our first try is to intent to specify "-m64" as CFLAGS and then filter
it when compiling and linking but fail.

The second try is to filter the COMPILE and LINK which carry "-m64" in
PPC64. It's just for this that we have to generate all rules for arch32
target in Please review the attached patches for

Now, the patches work well in X86/X86_64/PPC64 based on the cvs
head(09-20). But it has the following disadvantages:

After applying the pathes, automake will generate some garbage rules in, which will be commented in Makefile on X86_64/PPC64 but
will be passed into Makefile in X86 after running configure script. Of
course, the garbage rules will influence nothing.

That is ok. I can grub through the code and dig up other examples of harmless rules.
Being able to specify the 32-bit tests will help us get them working. I see the man page is also updated, wicked!

Thanks for this, yep ok.

After applying the patches and building frysk, you can run the following
command to do bi-arch test(in fact, it's just do arch 32 test on
X86_64/PPC64 now):

	./TestRunner --help # output the usage info of TestRunner
	./TestRunner        # do what it used to do
	./TestRunner --arch=<64|32> # run the 64-bit or 32-bit cases.

After you install the frysk, you can run the test through funit with the
similar commands as the above.
