Perhaps I picked a bad example.  I was thinking that most multiliberals
had PIC targets. 'grep MULTILIB_OPTIONS config/*/t-*' shows that very,
very few targets actually multilib PIC.

Dave, on your Irix box (Iris or Irix?) does this command do anything

  make check-g77 RUNTESTFLAGS='--target_board "unix{-mabi=n32,-mabi=64}"' 

This would probably be a better example becuase it wouldn't confuse
people into thinking that their system (which probably does support PIC
of some form) would be likely to work with that command.

If that command works, I'll enhance the example to include text saying
specifically what host that's known to work on.
