In the first buildworld run all packages are buildable on x86_64.  On
i386 glibc still fails (an assembler issue).

Currently the rebuilded groff segfaults.  The issue is somewhere in glibc
symbol table (__sincos() calls itself forever).  I'm afraid there will
be more such weird issues - we should update glibc itself soon.

I'll likely change glibc fix - patch "inline" instances instead of
passing -fgnu89-inline in CFLAGS.

Yes, I'll test it this way.

I'll post spec files tomorrow (there are minor issues I'll fix myself).
