32 BIT BUILD NOTES

  MongoDB uses memory mapped files.  If built as a 32 bit executable, you will
  not be able to work with large (multi-gigabyte) databases.  However, 32 bit
  builds work fine with small development databases.

  GNU Affero General Public License (AGPL).  See individual files for
  details.

  As an exception, the files in the client/, debian/, rpm/,
