AFAIK, only HPUX supports a 32-bit ia64 environment with
the HPUX compiler/toolchain.

Either build it on an ia32 system and install the ia32 compat libs
on the ia64 machines (poor performance) or try to build the application
as a native 64-bit application (better performance).

Sorry, but the obvious question is If you really only need 32-bit,
why not run it on a fast ia32 machine?

I know a few other reasons one might port to ia64 besides 64-bit
but would like to hear your reasons.
