    I tested it on Fedora Core 6 x86_64 and it built the
multilib fine. The only platform that will show the benefits
of the changes currently is Darwin since we are the only
ones building a 32-bit compiler by default with a 64-bit
multilib. The fix again is to allow this to work on 32-bit
processors which can't execute the 64-bit binaries that
they create. The current configure scripts in the 
effective directories will bail out claiming the -m64
executables won't run (when built on 32-bit processors).
