1 Hi @ll
3 Mea culpa ! I added "multilib" as a useflag to the portage ebuild
4 without recognizing that it was yet only a local useflag (in gcc).
5 Mr_Bones_ and ciaranm were so kind to point me to it and convinced me to
6 tell you all, thx guys ;-). Here we go:
8 So what's multilib ? At the moment it's an amd64 only global useflag,
9 but probably other 64bit archs which can execute and compile 32bit
10 binary will consider it usable too.
12 "+multilib" allows gcc to build x86 binarys on amd64 and makes portage
13 build a 32bit This 32bit sandbox [1] is necessary to
14 install some precompiled applications on amd64. (Example: Openoffice-bin
15 [2])
