Dynamic loading on sparc32 doesn't currently look for SPARC
v8-specific libraries, which are particularly important for openssl
(speeding up some of the cryptography by factors of several).  For
that reason, I think it rates as bug rather than wishlist, and sparc32
users like me would be greatful for an early Debian fix.

This happens because the `muldiv' hwcap isn't considered `important'.
It looks as though the following patch is what's required.  I haven't
tried to rebuild with it, but if I set LD_HWCAP_MASK=56 in the
environment, libraries are found in /usr/lib/muldiv.

As far as I can tell, there's a complete lack of doc on the hwcap and
multilib features.  I think they should be documented in ldconfig(8)
and ld.so(8).  I'm not sure I understand sufficiently to provide

These bugs are tagged as woody, because they're well-known problems
and for keeping open to come to light what the problem is.  However,
as you know, sarge was released.  Our stable version was moved from
woody to sarge.  It's high time to close old woody's bugs that are
still open.  Now I close these bugs.  If you have any objections to
close them, please reopen and let us know your trouble.
