I never even heard of multilib before joining java-discuss. I
think it comes from the Cygnus tree. (Somebody from Red Hat
feel free to correct me here.)
The best documentation I could find on the Cygnus build system is in
The effect of multilib is target dependent. On Alpha/Linux it creates
two target directories, one with "normal" floating point and one with
IEEE-conformant fp. I don't know exactly what it does on PowerPC.
