Thank you. I didn't know about those parameters. I'll give it a try. 
Perhaps, if I add the parameters to the kernel configuration, 
linuxflashplugin will build on amd64 too?
Can it be applied to the kernel modules? I have an intergrated network card 
from Marvell. They provide i386 binary module only. Is it assumed to be 
working if I indicate these parameters; however I think they're helpless 
in this case.
