I'm not surprised, given how broken a compiler GCL is even on i386

IIRC, CMUCL's AMD64 port was abandoned 3 years ago because the company
that financed it switched to sbcl. I think it should work on a mixed
32/64 bit profile but I haven't got any such machine; perhaps you'd like
to try to compile that and patch cmucl-19d_pre1-r1.ebuild accordingly ?
