ia64

I had asked here some time ago if erlang would run on ia64, and got no
answers. I have just had access to an ia64 box, and:

Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.2.3.3 [64-bit] [source]

Eshell V5.2.3.3  (abort with ^G)
1> P=open_port("/proc/cpuinfo",[stream,in]).

The only glitch: for some reason configure identifies the system as
ia64-unknown-linux-gnu while make expects ia64-unknown-linux. I just
symlinked them everywhere - of course the correct action would be to find
the reason why configure chooses the wrong name and fix it.

Also, compilation stopped in the middle of gs, at:
erl -pa ../ebin -s gs_make -s erlang halt -noshell
(sleeping forever). I killed it and restarted the compilation, and that
same line worked the second time.

I haven't tested it heavily yet, but trivial tests seem to work.

Regards,

Miguel
