Hi Apostolos,

quite the contrary: if you boot a 64-bit kernel (the default since
Solaris 10/SPARC and Solaris 11/x86), the *system* is *both* 32 and
64-bit.  What's of interest to the build process and thus the configure
triplet is if the *compiler* used generates 32 or 64-bit code: if using
a 64-bit compiler (either because that's the default or because you use
-m64), you get the 64-bit configure triplet, while with a 32-bit
compiler (again by default or due to -m32), you get the 32-bit triplet
instead.  Your change lost that distinction.
