That is not the best idea.  It disables *all* multilibs: for example,
for soft float as well.  If you want to not enable all targets, just say
so in your --enable-targets=, that is what it is for.
--disable-multilib means "kneecap the compiler, I don't care about all
the functionality this may disable".

Yeah, and all this "multiarch" stuff is as well.  (GCC does biarch just
fine of course, it is a similar concept, but much older, and it does
work fine.  It's not the same thing :-) )
