For the record this was produced by...
$ cd  build.macos32x86
$ find . -type f -print \
     -exec diff --side-by-side {} ../build.macos64x64/{} \; \
     | grep -e \| -e \< -e \> -e ^\.\/   >  diff-build.macosXxx
followed by some manual massaging of the resulting file.

Apart from Makefile, plugins.int & plugin.ext most else seems the same
in almost 3000 lines of config.
I "wonder" if with a common32 and a common64 the 32-bit and 64-bit
builds might be merged,
All the sub-build-folders might be like pharo.stack.spur32.
But maybe later required differences turn up that would be harder to handle ??
