for profiles, i'll be doing:

contains all of the default settings for x32 as native ABI, with amd64/x86 
being supplemental

profile for linux x32 users to set as their /etc/make.profile

the releases will include all 3 ABIs (which only affects gcc/glibc in terms of 
overhead).  if people want to use x32 with less other ABIs, then i think the 
expected use case will be for them to set MULTILIB_ABIS in their make.conf:
