64-bits is good: it allows for more options.

> Specifying -maix64 implies -mpowerpc64 and -mpowerpc, while -maix32
> disables the 64-bit ABI and implies -mno-powerpc64. GCC defaults to

If you're going to use the LDM to obtain lightning data, then you won't
need a large product-queue, so we can let the LDM package build its
default version.

Try the commands I sent in my last response.
