Question build Cinelerra 2.1 for x86_64, bash "arch" command not found?

Cinelerra 2.1

How can I build Cinelerra 2.1 from source for the x86_64 architecture? I have downloaded the source tar, and un-tarred it into a new directory. When I run the configure script, I get errors saying that bash can not find the "arch" command. I am using the x86_64 build of Ubuntu, and there is no arch command. It does have uname. If I run make after the configure error, it does not work.

Try './configure -help' to see if the usage output gives a hint how to invoke 'arch' in the configuration.

No, there was no hint with the -help command.

./configure -help
./configure: 11: arch: not found
./configure: 24: arch: not found
[: 24: i686: unexpected operator
[: 31: ==: unexpected operator
./configure: 47: Syntax error: Bad fd number
You can get the configure file and all the rest from

From what I have read, the heroinewarrior version of Cinelerra is no longer being maintained (could be wrong), but it is now being maintained by some former developers as

You can also get Cinelerra from the Meiabuntu repository and install it with Synaptic Package Manager. That is how I got it and it is continued to be supported.
