Re: [patch] ppc64 native target for gcc
Actually, I was thinking about this. If you point CC=gcc64, then,
config.guess should return powerpc64. If you point it at a 32-bit
default, config.guess can return powerpc. I think this would be
safe, as very, very few people will have a 64 bit default compiler,
and those that do, want the next one to be as well.
Well, right now we use uname -p to get the machine type. We'd have to
use a different method in place. Not that it's a bad idea though.
