That's a fly in the ointment, yes.  I spose that means removing the
toplevel n32 and n64 profiles.  This does mean duplication of files,
which is probably it's biggest downside -- but it gives us the greatest
flexibility IMHO.

In fact, there's an idea for profiles... why not have multiple
inheritance?  It'd be something to bring up with the portage devs I
think, but it may have some useful features.

Certainly though, at the very least, we should split according to
endianness and userland.  That way, CHOST and other vars can be set
correctly.
