I agree totally that trying to introduce multilib into LFS would be
very difficult for us right now. I wasn't trying to say we should. In
fact, I probably shouldn't have commented to the thread at all. But I
wasn't sure if the OP was talking Pure-64.

And now that I think about it some, multilib isn't that difficult for
LFS, it is BLFS where it becomes a total PITA (time-consuming).
