I understand your frustration. Before the patches I was on the opposite end and could not build those packages in 64-bit.

I agree we need a smarter method in the configuration process to detect the correct locations. I don't know how to fix this. There is so much I wish I knew how to fix. :-) Perhaps an easier solution is to migrate tqca and tqca-tls to cmake?

I suppose in the short-term you reverse the patches in your build scripts. :-(
