proposed patch for M2Crypto/

In x86 Prefix on amd64 linux box, there is a similar problem as in bug#617946:

/home/haubi/gentoo/32bit/usr/include/openssl/opensslconf.h:10: Error: CPP #error ""abi_x86_64 not supported by the package."". Use the -cpperraswarn option to continue swig processing.

We do not use 'linux32' personality as suggested in bug#617946, but set CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu" only.

Because the CC environment variable is respected for the subsequent compiler step, my suggestion is to respect the CHOST environment variable if available, in favor of python's platform.machine() - like the attached patch for M2Crypto/

What do you think?

Isn't this a problem with cross compiling as well?

I don't want to patch in a distro-specific way. If you can get a patch accepted upstream, a backport would be fine.

And yes, cross-compiling this package is probably quite broken.

A patched m2crypto-0.35.2-r1 is available in my overlay:
