Hipe compilation on Linux x86

It looks like you are running on an unsupported architecture
(, or at least as if the system think you do).
What does
  erlang:system_info(hipe_architecture)
return?

(It should say x86, this should be set by the makefile in erts/emulator

  During make, of the emulator, it should say something like:
   gcc  ... -DHIPE_ARCHITECTURE=x86 ... -Ihipe ...

When the system start it should say something like:
  Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 2001.09.05 [source] [hipe]
(The [hipe] part is important.)
)

This is what I managed to figure out by reading the makefiles.

But when I launch those two commands the built fails (last prerelease)
(log abstract as an attachement).

The build is successfull if I launch the following sequence of commands:

      ./configure
      ./make
      ./configure --enable-hipe
      ./make

Ok. Here is where I get. Now I am trying to figure out how I should use.
Here is what I did:

    hipe:c(test, [o2]).

and the result is:
   ** exited: {{case_clause,undefined},
               [{hipe,o1_opts,0},
                {hipe,opt_expansions,0},
                {hipe,expand_options,1},
                {hipe,compile,3},
                {hipe,c,3},
                {erl_eval,expr,3},
                {erl_eval,exprs,4},
                {shell,eval_loop,2}]} **

   =ERROR REPORT==== 17-Sep-2001::21:35:49 ===
   Error in process <0.31.0> with exit value:

{{case_clause,undefined},[{hipe,o1_opts,0},{hipe,opt_expansions,0},{hipe,exp
and_options,1},{hipe,compile,3},{hipe,c,3},{erl_eval,expr,3},{erl_eval,exprs
,4},{shell,eval_loop,2}]}

Does anyone see what I am doing wrong ?
