Ok so we will probably have the following multilib options * x86(ABI=x86_32{/lib}) + amd64(ABI=x86_64{lib64/}) + x32(ABI=x32{/libx32}) * x86/amd64 ( what we already have in amd64 multilib ) * x86/x32 and * x86 (no multilib for 32-bit processors ) ( what we already have in x86 profile ) Sounds doable - -- Regards, Markos Chandras / Gentoo Linux Developer / Key ID: B4AFF2C2 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.18 (GNU/Linux) iQIcBAEBCgAGBQJOc5SDAAoJEPqDWhW0r/LCHnYQAKuMpYvTWv4waSd503vfBjlb yHPUK+Hd9itz47I3lNmxqZGl7sQxIYm6Ht6MWs3qPIrwI60biUK/vH7dK0q1dnF9 x/zSEFc6hG4nyZ94oeTtsxV7Ttsk9QK/JY2Vm1ulBbEWJeb8sfQD1lesRFV++YZn Xeu3fMKkWoW/2m68nng7Rzfbxf2TvE7bdY3loefpXgMZf6kz7LSkNV1QidEwzs7V yZ9C4N8G8FVFysDykqGbYKMTtn70CCKI1HZ608NY7msWm6LADwpYQYsGENX04l2O xNpW1r+2bhSICT2TGzxIEsbspStH8g4XmRvIdXyZCbCecOyWRaAcBk9x6dY+6ZjB mZkzauSiXGFQcVjjXdXqL1pT2NGEoGe5eWi4daH4cy/12ND76/Gt79HogBUznWTX 5A50jyEjMMHcQjDxvWOyCGvq7yxU3Njs3mNzImEmbR3j3PwlniaFs3Vz76o6yEfE mJ0gaVP50XTDncsK9G4nrgJHKdA7BHOlWL50HXv0rsBHxkQyhsEiw5VaZUF7kOPr R2JptEh9Kh2JyV+EfF/m74Y3Ht0jaXY0MQXV5fl5QxvavRb7WX/mzVXwjY+IlnPB sJUcHkcNLNhm98e5j/CLn0T3DtmfqvnXSfF10wFztoUGDVOUuixVMo+ZvnGYdnH4 E4shmoxTlL7J5CzSEvpu =wlRl -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
