On PowerPC we have mostly 32-bit userspace by default. Firefox defaults
to 32-bit too.

The problem is that we ship both libraries and executable 'firefox'
browser together in the same package. What we _should_ do is split them
into separate 'firefox-libs' and 'firefox' packages. So you can have
both versions of the libraries installed, but choose only the one
'firefox'. Xulrunner will let us do it like that.
