 Wrong assumption.  I have thought the "-msym32" option was wired straight 
to CONFIG_BUILD_ELF64, which would be reasonable given what the 
configuration option is meant to be doing.  From the code generation's 
point of view the "-msym32" option can be safely dropped silently, but 
that questions the CONFIG_BUILD_ELF64 option itself and I think we have 
agreed, not necessarily enthusiastically, but still, that 
CONFIG_BUILD_ELF64 will be dropped altogether.
