Our lab is starting to test several server architectures by compiling 
and timing programs like blast, blat and hmmer. The setups are Darwin, 
regular i686, Intel's and AMD's X86_64 and IBM's ppc64.

I've found that blat only has the i686 machine type as a compilation 
option - not x86_64, and of course not Darwin or ppc64. Hmmer is smarter 
better - it only lacks support for ppc64 (it has plain ppc though). Does 
anyone know if it's possible to compile blat and hmmer on these
