If you comment out ONLY_FOR_ARCHS= i386 in 
you can get it to compile.

HOWEVER:  there are a slew of warnings about 'cast from pointer to 
integer of different size'
that may cause much grief and pain.   Most of these appear to be 
generated in the GTK library,
and apparently by the use of a cast to implement the 'offsetof' capability.

Good luck...
