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
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).
