Oh right, this list has the broken reply-to header that makes "reply
all" not reply to all. I need to come up with a thunderbird plugin to
disable that...

You answered your own question, but I note you can go "taskset 1
./" to do a single processor build with this. :)

In theory armv8l is what they used to call aaaarrcchh64 before they
decided to stutter and pretend it wasn't arm or whatever that nonsense
is. (I've done my best to ignore it.)

In practice I haven't tested that one yet and it looks like it's broken,
have to figure out how to hit it with a rock...

(The armv7r target is also broken because it's nommu but not pie, need
to tweak that...)

These are not multilib toolchains. If armv7l is 32 bit, armv8l is 64
bit, they have different libgcc.a and so on...

One is 32 bit, one is 64 bit?
