I checked the source over at github
(, and in
the configure script is (at line 205):

print "checking machine architecture... " unless ($AUTORUN);
println $MARCH unless ($AUTORUN);
unless ($MARCH =~ /x86_64/i || $MARCH =~ /i?86/i) {
    println "configure: error: unsupported architecture '$OSTYPE'";
    exit 1;

and then at 292:

print "checking for supported architecture... " unless ($AUTORUN);

my $BITS;

if ($MARCH =~ /x86_64/i) {
    $BITS = 64;
} elsif ($MARCH eq 'fat86') {
    $BITS = '32_64';
} elsif ($MARCH =~ /i?86/i) {
    $BITS = 32;
} else {
    die "unrecognized Architecture '$ARCH'";
println "$MARCH ($BITS bits) is supported" unless ($AUTORUN);

so it looks like x86_64 and i686 are pretty much hardcoded in.

I'm curious if they would build with modifications to the configure files,
but I don't have a machine to test it on.
