It depends. Is it pre-compiled software? If so, and there are both
separate 32 and 64 bit versions, then it's normal to include both
versions if possible. You would use the options with the _x86_64
suffix in the .info for the 64 bit version, and plain DOWNLOAD and
MD5SUM for the 32 bit.
However, if only a 64 bit version is available, then in the .info
file we would use DOWNLOAD="UNSUPPORTED" for 32 bit.
Hope that helps.
The antibloat squad!
