Actually I have had no problems building multilib.  I haven't tried PPC

But since you mentioned compile times... my pet peeve is libtool
compiling each object twice.  On some archs -fPIC makes no real
difference (e.g. Alpha).  This is probably true for any arch that isn't
register-starved like x86.
