[opensuse-buildservice] Re: Mysterious build failures: i586 chroot on CentOS 7 host

Ooooh, that's a very good hypothesis. The bus errors are also a strong
hint: it's been many years and many OS/architecture combinations since I
saw a bus error, but as I recall it was caused by alignment problems. So
it might not be _FILE_OFFSET_BITS, but it really smells like a binary
incompatibility between some SL 6 32-bit binaries and the CentOS 7
64-bit kernel.

If correct, this means that something about how SL 6 was compiled
precludes using that OS in a chroot environment hosted on CentOS 7. That
is unfortunate, but not fatal. I guess I'll just have to restrict my
32-bit builds to running only on SL 6 hosts. Time to go learn about
build constraints...
