patch to drop s390 support
Recent rebuild of Fedora 11 for the s390x architecture drops support for s390 (32-bit) version. The patch in attachment solves the situation for Fedora, but a decision should be done whether this change should be propagated into libhugetlbfs upstream or it will be Fedora specific.
I am going to apply this in the spec file until I can diagnose what is causing the build failure.
I think the primary cause is that F-11 gcc/glibc on s390x doesn't contain the 31/32 bit support, it supports only 64-bit.
You can see the failed builds at https://s390.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=4912
With that, this patch will remain separate from the upstream code. I will push the new package to testing for F11 today.
libhugetlbfs-2.4-2.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.

split to s390 and s390x cases
Or maybe the s390x conditional could be split into independent s390 and s390x parts.

new version of the patch add a fix to default library path on ia64 - ia64 uses "lib" for native 64-bit libraries - see http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html#LIB64 for details
ia64 on RHEL 5
i386/i586, x86_64, ppc, ppc64, s390x on Fedora

Changing version to '11'.

Please submit the two latest patches to firstname.lastname@example.org so they can be applied upstream. For the 2.4 release I will use the first patch that simply disables 32 bit S390 builds.
