Subject: [prefix] ia64-hpux keyword and 32bit/64bit
Date: Thu, 15 May 2008 11:58:50 +0200
Hi,

While 'ia64-hpux' is a multilib platform, and the compilers (HP-cc, gcc)
support this, their default output still is 32bit.

This is the reason why currently the 'ia64-hpux' keyword in prefix
stands for 32bit, but IMO this is just wrong.

What I could think of is something like this:

1) For "CHOST=ia64-hp-hpux*", patch toolchain (or set CFLAGS/LDFLAGS) to
default to 64bit, and use keyword 'ia64-hpux'.

2a) Define a new "CHOST=ia64_32-hp-hpux*", patch toolchain to understand
this (like for x64-solaris iirc?), and use keyword 'ia64_32-hpux'.

2b) Or should this better be named "CHOST=ia32-hp-hpux*" and keyword
'ia32-hpux' ?

How would this be confusing with the fact that 'ia32' is equal to 'x86'
from Intel's POV (they use 'x64' for 'x86' + EM64T extension IIRC).

Thoughts?
