I am trying to compile 32bit perl on 64 bit redhat Enterprise Linux 4
running. The gcc we have in the box is also 64 bit. The reason I need
to compile 32 bit perl is because we were told some home-grown modules
need 32bit perl.

I tried a few ways, but none seemed working.

After unpack the perl 5.10.0
1) setarch i386 ./Configure
The perl was compiled successfully. But the executable is still 64

2) Configure
