The patch removed that part ( note the '-' sign) and the that is the
wrong architecture anyway. ia64 is the Intel Itanium architecture not
AMD x86_64. It is obviously possible to build on the x86_64 platform
because the ebuild has an option to install prebuilt binaries, the
problem is they use an executable stack. Looking at the Gentoo ebuild it
appears that, at least in some older version, this was not necessary,
and so possibly still isn't.
