This looks like the build is bringing in 64bitness when it shouldn't (or
vice versa). The build process might have remnants of the previous
config run lying around (in Policy.sh and/or config.sh). Step down into
the build directory and delete these two files, and build again.
Or, better yet, just delete the entire ./work directory, and build it again.
