Ok, then we should try to create some easy way to allow users to
create a site.exp that checks all available multilibs.  I myself don't
have the faintest idea on how to do that, do you?  Could you (or
anyone else) post an example?

What do you think of providing an alternate make target
(check-multilib) that would create a modified site.exp then run make
