I am open to an equivalent solution. I tried -m32 on durango.c:

/usr/include/gnu/stubs.h:7:27: error: gnu/stubs-32.h: No such file or

The problem isn't generated code but the inline assembler in the source

durango.c:203: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `push'

203:     " push %%ebx\n"      It should be %%rbx  for 64 bit.

There may be an easy way to tell the compiler to handle this situation.
