what exactly is it you're concerned with ?  if it's sizes of specific types, 
then do as Bob said and check individual types.  you cannot make assumptions 
when the target is "64bits" or "32bits" because not everyone does a 64bit port 
the same.  case in point is the Windows 64bit port.  it does not define type 
sizes the way most people (like Linux 64bit) do.

i also think you're confusing BUILD and HOST.  BUILD is where things are 
compiled while HOST is where things execute.  the vast majority of the time, 
HOST is what you want.
