Please, Jonas, don't get me wrong! ;-)

In my poor english I was trying to explain that maybe, at this point of
feature enabling (Cycles support), there are not so many Blender fans
running ia64 or s390/s390x machines. Most of them are running amd64/i386
boxes, instead.

Since Cycles support in Blender is strictly related to OpenImageIO
library (which I'm maintaining within Debian PhotoTools Team) and it's
still failing in a lot of architectures (all but [any-amd64] [any-i386]
ia64 and s390/s390x), I thought it was wise enough not to enable it on
those not-so-common architectures. It's a temporary choice, waiting for
me to fix the other architecture building processes.

But that's my idea and maybe it's wrong.
Any advice is really appreciated.
