Description

A look in $SAGE_HOME/local/lib shows this is being built 32-bit, even when SAGE64 is set to yes. Note how the libraries of libhisotry below are 64-bit (as they should be), but libgpg's are 32-bit.

zlib is another package to suffer this problem - see #7128

libgcrypt fails to build in 64-bit on Solaris SPARC with gcc (see #7127). This might actually be related and a fault of this package, rather than of libgcrypt, though there is another Solaris issue on that package.

libgpg-error.la:        commands text
libgpg-error.so:        ELF 32-bit MSB dynamic lib SPARC32PLUS Version 1, V8+ Required, dynamically linked, not stripped
libgpg-error.so.0:      ELF 32-bit MSB dynamic lib SPARC32PLUS Version 1, V8+ Required, dynamically linked, not stripped
libgpg-error.so.0.4.0:  ELF 32-bit MSB dynamic lib SPARC32PLUS Version 1, V8+ Required, dynamically linked, not stripped
libhistory.a:   current ar archive, not a dynamic executable or shared object
libhistory.so:  ELF 64-bit MSB dynamic lib SPARCV9 Version 1, dynamically linked, not stripped
libhistory.so.6:        ELF 64-bit MSB dynamic lib SPARCV9 Version 1, dynamically linked, not stripped

I will sort this package out after creating a new sage-env, which exports all the variables properly, including the flag for building 64-bit code, which is not always -m64.

Although there is no support for AIX or HP-UX in Sage yet, we could potentially add it - I personally own machines running AIX and HP-UX.

IBM's compiler on AIX uses -q64, and HP's on HP-UX uses +DD64.

The sensible way to resolve this is to add the correct flag on every platform.
