1 ive converted my system over to x86/amd64/x32 multilib for funs. but i can
2 see how some people wont want all three all the time. so the question is how
3 we want to make this available to users at the release/profile level.
5 background: x32 is a new ABI that runs on 64bit x86_64 processors. see [1].
6 you'll need gcc-4.7+, binutils-2.21.50+, glibc-2.15+, and linux-3.2+.
8 KEYWORDS wise, i'd like to avoid having to add "x32" everywhere. instead,
9 reusing "amd64". only downside is the existing USE=amd64 behavior, but we can
10 address that by making MULTILIB_ABIS a USE_EXPAND (i think this came up before
11 with the portage multilib discussion).
13 release wise, we could ship a single multilib stage (x86/amd64/x32) and make
14 it easy to convert to a subset. that way we still need only one.
16 other thoughts ?
