Yep. Thanks for the hints, by the way, and sorry to have filled your
inbox. So if I understand correctly, this bug is about two or three
1. Getting multiarch support patches applied in non-Debian toolchains
(upstream gcc, upstream clang, and so on);
2. Wrapper scripts for building and using toolchains that lack
built-in support for multiarch paths (e.g., for bisecting bugs
introduced by old versions of gcc, using proprietary compilers,
3. (?) Some other sort of trick to fool toolchains without lack for
multiarch paths into coping with wheezy (symlinks to each library
and header don't scale well for that, though it has been suggested
by some people, but maybe a fake sysroot with symlinks to the
multiarch and common directories could work).
(1) and (2) is basically what you said already. Sorry for the noise.
