Using g++ and -m32 option on x86_64 broken

Cygwin's GCC responds to the -m32 option, but it causes a compile error:

   expected unqualified-id before ‘__int128’
       inline __int128

If the project does not support the -m32 option, then it should be
removes so that using it causes a compile error.

Below is the changed needed to get through the compile with -m32:

$ diff /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-cygwin/4.9.2/include/c++/x86_64-pc-cygwin/bits/c++config.h
< #ifndef __CYGWIN32__      /* -m32 used on x86_64 */
< # define _GLIBCXX_USE_INT128 1
< #endif
> #define _GLIBCXX_USE_INT128 1


And this project really needs a bug tracker...
