swh plugins compile error on AMD64


Having finally gotten Ardour to work on my AMD64 to work I would like some plugins to with it. However when I try to compile Steve Harris' swh-plugins the compiler halts with an error when doing the 'make' part.
I'm running Fedora Core 3 compiled for AMD64 bit. When I run the configure script with no spcial parameters it gives me two warnings. First one is:

/usr/src/swh-plugins-0.4.13/missing: Unknown `--run' option
Try `/usr/src/swh-plugins-0.4.13/missing --help' for more information
configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing

and second one is:

./configure: line 22729: -I@top_srcdir@/intl: No such file or directory
configure: WARNING: Can't fine architecture specifaction in CFLAGS, picking onefrom build host CPU type
configure: WARNING: May result in non-portable code

then when I run 'make' it halts after about ten lines saying:

then mv -f ".deps/rms.Tpo" ".deps/rms.Po"; else rm -f ".deps/rms.Tpo"; exit 1; fi
rms.c:1: error: bad value (x86_64) for -march= switch
rms.c:1: error: bad value (x86_64) for -mtune= switch
make[2]: *** [rms.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/swh-plugins-0.4.13/util'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/swh-plugins-0.4.13'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I've tried to build it using --build=i386 but that just gave a different kind of error, saying it couldn't be done for x86_64 or something to that effect.

Hope anyone can help.

I'm gonna take a guess at this. Instead of "build=i386" which is likely impossible on your system(you probably don't have multilib support), try setting "-march=athlon64".

Hope this helps,
Error messages are your friends...

Nope didn't work.

Weird thing is though, that I have the multilibs install needed to crosscompile, but I still can't build it for i386. Don't know if I need to edit anything.

Any pointers will be useful.

Take care
