No, this is both unnecessary and against current practice, compared both to
how non-libgcc multilibs are installed by gcc (i.e. the default multilib in
$slibdir, others in appropriate subdirs) and vendor practice. Moving the
default multilibs to a subdir just creates confusion for the users
(especially if they need to handle this change when either setting
LD_LIBRARY_PATH or passing -R/-rpath) with no real gain.

Right, but its not only SPARC/Solaris 7+: MIPS/IRIX 6 is in the same boat
with the N32 and N64 ABIs.
