I was talking about things needed for runtime. For development you
even need separate bin dirs (think pkg-conf, getconf, etc.) for the
configure scripts to work right. At present musl's headers can be
shared between archs except for the bits subdir (so you can make a
custom install where bits isn't in the shared include dir, and instead
add it to gcc's default include path) but this isn't a permanent
guarantee that it will work that way. You're best off having all
development-related files be separate per-arch.
