How is this an issue for multilib-portage? It only requires a toolchain able to build for the target
and the details in environment (like possible targets and needed additional flags for each target).
Thinking about the issues when starting with a new target, it might be a good idea to have the basic
system (stage3) for the multilib profile to contain files for all targets, but only enable the
default ABI. So when a user wants some other targets, he already has a base system, else he can just
reinstall the base system and drop the unused files with this step.
