Subject: [gentoo-dev] {bi,multi}arch support for all x86/amd64/ppc/sparc systems
Date: Wed, 07 Dec 2011 22:33:38
1 there's a bug open atm requesting we add biarch support to our x86/amd64
2 compilers [1]. i'd like to take this further and do it for all ppc systems
3 too (sparc has already done this). basically, this just affects the code that
4 gcc can generate. it does not affect the libraries it includes.
6 i haven't heard any feedback from peeps, so if no one has any reason not to do
7 this, i'll enable it prob this weekend.
9 the advantage is that it should obsolete the separate kgcc64 package for most
10 people. and i think it might help out with the multilib bootstrap issue: you
11 can't build multilib gcc without a multilib glibc, and can't build a multilib
12 glibc without a multilib gcc, but i think you should be able to build a
13 multilib glibc with a multiarch gcc, and then a multilib gcc after that.
