6 for profiles, i'll be doing:
8 arch/amd64/x32/:
9 contains all of the default settings for x32 as native ABI, with amd64/x86
10 being supplemental
12 profiles/default/linux/amd64/10.0/x32/:
13 profile for linux x32 users to set as their /etc/make.profile
15 the releases will include all 3 ABIs (which only affects gcc/glibc in terms of
16 overhead). if people want to use x32 with less other ABIs, then i think the
17 expected use case will be for them to set MULTILIB_ABIS in their make.conf:
18 /etc/make.conf:MULTILIB_ABIS="x32"
