  Are you using master? It looks like I haven't
merged the fix yet (it did make it into the release).
The problem usually shouldn't appear unless there are
other issues with your configuration. You might
want to check bin.v2/configure.log.
Or... are you trying to build fat binaries? That
could cause this issue as well (failure to deduce
address-model/architecture because it isn't unique.).
