multilib problems

    Hey guys,

    I recently followed the instructions on Pete's blog (http://pete-tech.blogspot.com/2010/07/compiling-mingw-w64-with-multilib-on.html) in order to build mingw64 with multilib. I noticed that most of the issues he mentioned are still problems today: makefiles need to be edited by hand, libtool needs to be copied to a particular directory, etc.

    Which project is responsible for these issues…mingw64 or GCC? Are there any plans to fix them?

    Thanks,

    ---Drew

    Hello,

    the libtool things need to be addressed to the libtool project and to gcc. There are some nits about detecting x64 windows executables, if there is no file-tool present.
    The configure magic is something to be addressed to gcc, too.

    Regards,
    Kai
