Yeah, in theory that would be nice, but so far not having any luck
with it.  Two of the three dependent libraries will only work as
64-bit on Solaris / SPARC, and gcc will only by default compile as
32-bit, so it's a no-go.

As it stands, looks like I have two choices:

A. Communicate with the mpfr and mpc folks to see if there's any way
to get these to compile successfully in 32-bit mode. (Which I can do
with gmp!)

B. Figure out how to alter the specs behavior of the gcc during the
build process to default to 64-bit so that the xgcc stages will not
continue to insist to build 32-bit (despite what the env vars have
