Hm.  Looking at this test I'm not sure why it always works.  AFAIK,
wildcard doesn't sort and it seems unlikely that every filesystem in the
world would return files in the same order during readdir().

Probably you're using a different FS in the x86_64 system; maybe ReiserFS?

Anyway, if you change the test to $(sort ...) the results of the
$(wildcard ...) (and change the results accordingly) does it work on
both the old and new systems?

Note I already reset LANG in the test framework, so locale issues
shouldn't interfere.
