I did try with the same result - no difference whatsoever.

Nope! The compiler is quite capable of producing multi-arch binaries. This particular feature is called "multilib", not sure if you've heard about it, but it does exist.

As I already mentioned above my gcc compiler is multilib-capable - does that ring any bells?
