Adding HiPE native code to the .beam file is currently only supported
for SPARC. (And only if you use the ordinary Erlang compiler with the
native option, _not_ hipe:c, I think.) We have one person (Erik) working
on adding this for the x86 as well, it should be complete later this
week or perhaps next week.
