What kind of nonsense is that?? Why should we drop support for hppa
for lenny because hppa doesn't have a 64bit userland??
Can you be a bit more explicit as to what you need given the above?
Again I repeat: *there is no hppa 64bit userland runtime*. The only
reason why we have 64bit gcc/binutils is to build 64bit kernels needed
by some machines.
