Re: Toplevel configury, multilibs, new autoconf versions

I tend to think the 'correct' way to do things is to move multilibbing 
to the top level.  ;-)  But that might be too much work to do *before* 
the autoconf upgrade.

So the testsuite_flags stuff isn't the problem?  That was the part I've 
been afraid to tweak.  :-)

I think 'preinstall' is the correct solution for this.  libstdc++ should 
be changed to preinstall the libraries into preinstall-${target}/lib.

Then after multilibbing is moved to the top level, the 
non-multilib version would always have preinstall-${target}/lib added
to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH passed down from the top.  For the multilibbed 
targets, each one would have a different, appropriate 
preinstall-${target}/xx/lib added to LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

OK, so this is pie-in-the-sky.  But maybe you can find a way to adapt 
this idea to the current state of things?
