Hi, been following parrot for awhile, since OSCON 2005 in fact.
Finally might have some cycles to contribute; maybe docs, maybe tests.

Getting feet wet, got parrot via svn. did Configure and make and make
running parrot shows that it was built for i386.

FYI I am running Ubuntu 7.1 (Gutsy) 32bit version on an Athlone64
Here is the output of the tests if you are interested.

ll tests successful, 10 tests and 667 subtests skipped.
Files=391, Tests=11720, 186 wallclock secs (118.41 cusr + 25.00 csys =
143.41 CPU)

greg at shadow:~/parrot$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.1.3 20070929 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.1.2-16ubuntu2)

greg at shadow:~/parrot$ ./parrot --version
This is Parrot version 0.9.0-devel built for i386-linux.

A scan of the myconfig file shows that all of the 'arch' symbols are
in fact defined as 386.
Is there a way I can build parrot for i686 architecture?
my uname -m shows i686, and I have libc6-i686 installed.
