I'm trying an install on a Xserve G5 machine. I'd really like to be able to use both 32 and 64-bit code, so I'd like to run with multilib. I see hints that it worked back in 2006.0, and I also see hints it doesn't work in 2006.1. It also doesn't even exist as a profile in 2007.0 which would lead me to guess that it probably isn't going to be trivial to get to work.

While I might be able to make it go -- having it be non-trivial means that there's no way I'd use it in a production environment, which is what I'm building. Or at least semi-production.

Building 32-bit is probably acceptable. Building a 32-bit system with 64-bit execution capability would be just as good as native-64 + 32-bit compatibility as far as I'm concerned, but my reading of multilib is that it extends down to 32 rather than up to 64.

Thoughts?
