[ale] Ubuntu Dropping all 32-bit Releases from 19.10 forward



Gentoo won't leave you hanging either, at least not for now. The default 
x86_64 (called "amd64" architecture just because AMD beat Intel to 
market) profile still has 32-bit libs present (useful for WINE, IIRC) 
but you can select a -nomultilib profile and it'll whack 'em to leave 
you straight-up 64-bit all around. I still have a couple of 32-bitters 
in my rack at home that run fine.
