I guess most long-year sparc users are by now against any multiarch
stuff by bad experience. Having 64 bit libraries installed on sparc
was always the best way to get a broken system. Every other year
some directory changes to a symlink, or a symlink to a directory,
changes it name from ultra to sparc64 or there is some other reason
breaking your upgrades. So at least I try as good as I can to avoid
anything with the threathening "64" in its name.
