Can we move the multilib fixes into gcc 4.2 branch as well after a few weeks of testing in gcc trunk?

I'd say, move them now, it doesn't build currently. I ran up against libgfortran and:


checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.

in the 4.2 release branch.

Without these changes, one has to pass a new --disable-multilib option to configure when building
the fortran

Yeah, unfortunate. People have already expressed that this is bad and worthy of fixing. I agree.


or java targets on Darwin machines with 32-bit processors.

Yup.


I would argue that that amounts to a regression from gcc 4.1.1.

I think so too, I believe it used to build.
