Cross-compile 32bit meson project from multilib'd system


Apologies if I got any terminology wrong.
I run Slackware64-current and have multilib deployed.
I have a program that I'm attempting to build that uses meson/ninja. I found the SBo meson template here. I successfully adapted it and built a 64-bit binary/package. However, I'm not sure what flags or setting that I need to change to build a 32-bit library. I attempted to change the CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS from "-O2 -fPIC" for the 64-bit build to "-O2 -march=i686 -mtune=i686", but it throws an error:
/meson.build:1:0: ERROR: Compiler ccache cc can not compile programs. Followed by:
A full log can be found at /tmp/SBo/MangoHud-0.6.1/build32/meson-logs/meson-log.txt
That log file has the following in it:
Main binary: /usr/bin/python3
Build Options: -Dprefix=/usr -Dinfodir=/usr/info -Dlibdir=/usr/lib -Dlocalstatedir=/var -Dmandir=/usr/man -Dsysconfdir=/etc -Dbuildtype=release

Sanity check compile stdout:

-----
Sanity check compile stderr:
cc1: error: CPU you selected does not support x86-64 instruction set

-----

../meson.build:1:0: ERROR: Compiler ccache cc can not compile programs.

As far as I can tell, I need to pass cross-compiler=yes and cpu=x86 somehow?
But when searching this, it seems that I need to build a cross-compiler file?
Am I over-complicating this?
Is the solution as simple as some missing flags?

The flag that is missing is -m32.

Try to add it to your CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS and LDFLAGS arguments.

So simple! I knew I was overlooking something easy. Everything compiled as expected. Thank you Bruno!
