It's easy to run it and compare before proceeding with the build.

It might be desirable to have a

  petsc-config verify CC=cc CFLAGS='-m32 -mcmodel=large' CXXFLAGS=-std=c++11 ...

that would check whether the given compiler configuration is
binary-compatible with the way PETSc was built.  It should be reasonably
fast, but could actually run the compiler.
