if gcc declares libhf as another multilib target, then everyone else will get it automatically note: i don't care about /lib/ld-linux-hf.so.3 or /lib/ld-linux.so.4 or /libhf/ld-linux.so.. /lib/<triplet>/<ldso> is really the only one i don't think doesn't belong. > > the implication in supporting both hardfloat and softfloat simultaneously > > is that you'd could have them both installed. thus putting them both in > > /lib/ doesn't make much sense if you're still going to need /libhf/ to > > hold everything else. > > That case has only any chance of realization in a multiarch environment > such as Debian/Ubuntu. don't really know what you're talking about here. other distros have no problem with handling multilib. -mike
