Yes, that's pretty much my thought as well.

Like Bruno, I didn't understand Florian's comments. Any apps and/or libraries compiled with _TIME_BITS=64 will have the API issues Bruno mentioned, even if the apps and/or libraries don't use Gnulib. I don't see why these issues would cause distros to abandon 32-bit i386 simply because of Gnulib.
