To be realistic, is anyone actually going to do this?

Avenues forward:

 a) Help upstream authors of toolchain components with hardcoded
    header and library search paths to implement multiarch.

	gcc: in progress - http://gcc.gnu.org/PR53468 (thanks, Matthias!)
	clang: fixed? - http://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=6541
	icc (Intel C++): status?
	pathcc (PathScale ekopath): status?
	tcc (Tiny C compiler): fixed - b56edc7b, 2012-05-22
	pcc (Portable C compiler): unfixed - http://bugs.debian.org/638309
	cmake: fixed - http://public.kitware.com/Bug/view.php?id=12037

 b) There is a workaround described in libc6/NEWS.Debian.gz which
    works fine:


    It's probably worth advertising that more widely, for example in
    the release notes.

 c) Compatibility wrapper.  If someone needs this, feel free to email
    me and I'll help out however I can.
