Hi maintainer

Version 1.5.2-1 of abyss FTBFS on 32-bit architectures (armhf, i386 and 
powerpc) in Ubuntu [1].
Previous versions built fine on all architectures.

I found there were a couple of places in the code that was introduced in 
version 1.5.2 where size_t data type was used instead of a fixed size 
data type.
I was able to get abyss 1.5.2-1 to build on amd64, i386 and armhf with 
the attached patch in place and all unit tests passed.
I have no idea where to begin actually testing abyss itself.

Is it worth me uploading abyss with this patch into Ubuntu?
This will at least allow version 1.5.2-1 to migrate from proposed to 
Alternatively, is this software useful on a 32-bit system?  The other 
solution is for me to disable building for these architectures.
