Bug description

This patch adds support for the x32 architecture, on Linux.

As you can see, most of the troubles came from the current code confusing x32 with amd64 and i386. It should also be possible to borrow pieces from those two architectures to add native support, however, not knowing anything about ocaml or the compiler, I went with bytecode only for now.

Partially merged in trunk, commit 16243. I lefet out the otherlibs/num part because this library is on its way to a standalone package and its configuration will have to be revised then.
