Yep, I fear that something more 'automatic' would involve running
configure with different arguments and build subdirectories and
afterwards 'something' clever to merge the resulting headers. This
could get a a bit messy.

Probably it would be easier, at least as a first step to have
configure generate two 'universal binary' makefiles a 32-bit one and a
64-bit one.

But all this is certainly much more than what I was originally asking
for. Simply finding out which file references were missing from
