RE is getting the following error with their builds:

ERROR: You do not have a valid GCC29_COMPILER_PATH setting. 
  Please check your access to 
  and/or check your value of ALT_GCC29_COMPILER_PATH. 
  This will affect you if you build the plugin target. 
Exiting because of the above error(s). 
gnumake: *** [post-sanity] Error 1
## Linux AMD 64-bit local build finished on jdk-lin-amd64

EVALUATION The problem is that as of b23, we now step into the deploy ws and do nothing for 64-bit. We never did this before b23. We're not seeing this error, because our deployment machines have these compilers. RE's machines see this error because they don't have them. The fix should be to ifdef out the deploy Sanity.gmk file unless BUILD_DEPLOY64 is defined.
