So I guess that leaves the subarches like so: x86: i486, x86_64 arm: arm(eb), armel mips: mips(32), mipsel(32) microblaze: microblaze (What's the status of microblazeel/microblazele? configure looks not to recognize it...) ppc: powerpc(32) Total arches: 6 Total subarches (distinct ABIs): 8-10 (depending on status of microblazeel and ABI compatability of armhf with armel) -planned subarches: mipsel32-sf, mips32-sf -planned arches: x32 -distant: mips64, mipsel64, ppc64 (I *think* Rich Pennington got these working, but they haven't been merged) -unsupported subarches: i386 It seems Debian's using aarch64-* for ARMv8. -- Isaac Dunham <idunham@...abit.com>
