Re: [RFC] support --with-multilib-list=@/path/name

Here's a patch that takes the multilib list file from gcc/config/arm.

Any objections, further requests or advice, before I put it in and
proceed to extend it to other targets?


support --with-multilib-list=@name for ARM

Introduce @name as a means to specify alternate multilib profiles as
arguments to --with-multilib-list.

So far this is only implemented for ARM.

Tested on x86_64-linux-gnu-x-arm-eabi, comparing multilib.h before and
after the patch after configuring with preexisting profiles, and also 
@name with and without preexisting profiles.


for  gcc/ChangeLog

	* config.gcc (tmake_file): Add name to tmake_file for
        each @name in --with-multilib-list on arm-*-* targets.
	* doc/install.texi (with-multilib-list): Document it.
