For Ubuntu? I have a similar patch to get lx24-em64t for Intel CPUs, but I wonder about the reason to target Ubuntu. As the name of the architecture is also compiled into the binaries, they need to be patched (or rebuild) too:


Just change the complete string lx24-em64t string to something with the same length and name the 3 directories inside bin/lib/utilbin according to this.

PS: Of course: do on your own risk, for me it's working to distinguish between amd64 and em64t this way and just use $ARC in the jobscript.
